Using GPS and sensors placed around the building, users will be shown which point is being demonstrated when they walk into the area correlating to that point.

FREE DESIGN OF THE FACADE
Free design of the facade. By projecting the floor beyond the supporting pillars, like a balcony all round the building, the whole facade is extended beyond the supporting construction. It thereby loses its supportive quality and the windows may be extended to any length at will, without any direct relationship to the interior division. A window may just as well be 10 metres long for a dwelling house as 200 metres for a palatial building (our design for the League of Nations building in Geneva). The facade may thus be designed freely. The five essential points set out above represent a

THE SUPPORTS
To solve a problem scientificall means in the first place to distinguish between its elements. Hence in the case of a building a distinction can immediatley be made between the supporting and the non-suporting elements. The earlier foundations, on which the building rested withouth a mathematical check, are replaced by individual foundations and building rested without a mathematical check, are replaced by individual foundations and the walls by individuals supports. Both supports and support foundations are precisely calculated according to the burdens they are called opon to carry. These supports are spaced out at a sepcific, equal

THE ROOF GARDEN
The flat roof demands in the first place systematic utilization for domestic purposes: roof terrace, roof garden. On the other hand, the reinforced concrete demands protection against changing temperatures. Overactivity on the part of the reinforced concrete is prevented by the maintenance of a constant humidity on the roof concrete. The roof terrace satisfies both demands (a raindampened layer of sand covered with concrete slabs with lawns in the interstices; the earth of the flowerbeds in direct contact with the layer of sand). In this way the rain water will flow off extremely slowly. Waste pipes in the interior of the building. Thus a latent humidity will remain

THE HORIZONTAL WINDOW
Together with the intermediate ceilings the supports form rectangular openings in the facade through which light and air enter copiously. The window extends from support to support and thus becomes a horizontal window. Stilted vertical windows consequently disappear, as do unpleasant mullions. In this way, rooms are equably lit from wall to wall. Experiments have shown that a room thus lit has an eight times stronger illumination than the same room lit by vertical windows with the same window area. The whole history of architecture revolves exclusively around the wall apertures. Through

“To create architecture is to put in order”. This will start their journey and be the opening statement to reflect how we’re using the space to display the 5 points of new architecture in a linear fashion.
