15.1. Location "digital sculpture"

The "digital sculpture" has been part of the commemorative culture of the city of Dessau since 25.07.2016, and is part of the Junkers trail.

The "digital sculpture", design architect Dieter Bankert, is reminiscent of one of the most important creative places of Prof. Hugo Junkers, which was demolished between 2010 and 2012. At the site of the sculpture, which is made of fragments of the steel construction of the administration building of Kalorifer factory; the following companies were located: Junkers Kalorifer factory (founded in1908, in Dessau since1914), Junkers calorimetre (1921), Junkers-Stahlbau (1926) and the central apprenticeship training of the Junkers factories (1927). The technical equipment of the companies was used worldwide. People valued the modern Junkers technology, especially its high level of reliability and long lasting quality. Junkers steel constructions are still proving themselves today in Europe, Asia, North and South America. In the VEB Junkalor Dessau (1948-1990), combustion measurement devices, gas analysers, equipment for dynamic flow rate measurement and medical technology measurement devices of a world class standard, were built at the historical location.
