The concept of the exhibition was tailored for a flexible and modular form, for it to suite various spatial contexts. Hence, the idea of THE GRID which would allow to design a structure to fit over a century of historical content. The exhibition was designed around a chronological story that would showcase how our perception and understanding of the Universe changed over time.

This was expressed by three core questions – I. What is the size and structure of the Universe? II. How do stars form and shine? III. Is there life elsewhere in the Universe? – that would combine three types of achievements – scientific, technological and cultural. These assumptions defined the architectural and visual approach to the exhibition.
