The SimmINN Flight Simulation Center in Stuttgart, Germany is Dynamic

The SimmINN Flight Simulation Center in Stuttgart, Germany elegantly demonstrates how form can be incorporated breathlessly into function. The facility provides for a Boeing 737 flight simulation while including a full-size rendition of the same plane within its walls. This is achieved through an ingenious use of space and a subtle play on perception. Rather than simply plopping a giant model into an even larger building, the designers behind the SimmINN Flight Simulation Center, Boris Banozic, disperses the plane against the facility's interior surfaces.

The actual model forms only fraction of the Boeing 737 rendering. Much of the plane is actually painted onto walls that protrude in various directions. Looking from certain angles, this produces the illusion that the plane is a single image.

Essentially, Boris Banozic uses planes to depict a plane.
