What should be a museum that combines the history of the car with his future? Revision ENGINE-MARKET, visited one of these wonderful museums. This photo report about our trip to the museum, "Mercedes Benz", which is located in the German city Stuttgart. The museum building architecture like weaving a double helix: the same unique and elementary as human DNA. In terms of the museum is a symmetrical trefoil, consisting of the combined total circuit of three overlapping circles. The spherical triangle formed by their intersection, cut to form a composite center of the building – the atrium. It opened at different levels of certain fragments of exposure, located in the spiral winding semicircles.
Visitors can climb one of the three elevators, capsule, located on the walls of the atrium, at the very top – and from there go down to binding the semicircles and atrium serpentine. Two exposure unit – "a myth" and "Collection" – two spirals apart, but at every level can change the route and move to another, "a thematic track."

The reasons may be quite different: – Paphos and the desire to show the presence of excess free funds belonging to the caste of the so-called 'new Russian', and not always members have sufficient funds to do so, it might just be their imagination + a small amount of low-cost tuning (ara pipes, Chinese kit, lights underneath the car audio system inside the basins, etc.), lack of friends, a desire to find like-minded people at least in some small uzkoyoblasti membership of a particular make of car, the desire to communicate, novyhznakomstv.
