AI Pavilion (e3): experimenta has become bigger

The pavilion for artificial intelligence called e3 completes the ensemble formed by the exhibition building e1 and the Habenbucher storehouse e2 at experimenta-Platz. Located directly at the Hagenbucher bridge, it offers 180 square meters of exhibition space for around forty visitors.

Its unique feature is that the elegant timber-frame construction is recyclable. The design is from the international architectural firm Sauerbruch Hutton, which also designed the spectacular new building e1.

AI – Insights and Visions

Artificial Intelligence in a Pavilion

We have expanded the experimenta! A exhibition is dedicated to the forward-looking topic of artificial intelligence. In the new wooden pavilion, you’ll find numerous captivating interactive stations where you can learn more about AI and try it out for yourself. One part is devoted to Heilbronn’s “Innovation Park Artificial Intelligence” (IPAI), currently probably the most ambitious project for applied AI in all of Europe. What questions, opinions, and thoughts do you have about AI? What should a future with AI look like? We look forward to your input about the exhibition!

What do chess, checkers, and the Rubik’s Cube have to do with the development of AI? What role did a tortoise or a tiny mouse play? In this section, you can playfully discover how AI has developed. Because people have been thinking about and researching AI for a very long time. The exhibition guides you through historic milestones to the rapid rise of AI in recent years.


You can experiment with AI yourself at six interactive stations in the Workshop section. Compose poetry with AI’s help, create fascinating works of art, or test how good AI is at recognizing your drawings, At the same time, you can test the limits of the applications presented, becoming familiar with AI as a tool.
