Civil engineers play the leading role in the exhibition entitled "Visionäre und Alltagshelden. Ingenieure – Bauen – Zukunft" (Visionaries and Everyday Heroes. Engineers – Build – Future). As inventors, designers, entrepreneurs and doers, they are both visionaries and everyday heroes.
The exhibition outlines the historical development of the profession, building a bridge to the present and giving an outlook on the future. Protagonists and milestone projects, traditional building projects and innovations document the social, cultural and technological relevance of civil engineering.
The Oskar von Miller Forum presents the exhibition in cooperation with the M:AI Museum für Architektur und Ingenieurkunst NRW.
Opening hours: November 10, 2017 to January 14, 2018. Tuesday to Sunday 12 to 6 pm.
