Summary

Interior view of the faculty for mathematics and computer science's main building (FMI building) at the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garching_bei_M%C3%BCnchen" class="extiw" title="wikipedia:Garching bei München">Garching</a> campus of <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technische_Universit%C3%A4t_M%C3%BCnchen" class="extiw" title="wikipedia:Technische Universität München">Technische Universität München</a> (TUM, Technical University of Munich), featuring the artwork Brunner / Ritz: Parabel, 2002 (aka “parabolic slides”). Formula: z = y = h x²/d².
Background information: According to German law, a certain fraction of the budget for erecting a state-owned building has to be spent on “architectural art” (German Kunst am Bau)—which, in the case of the FMI building, are the two huge slides you can see in the picture. The slides are open to visitors; the sliding pads that are absolutely required for using the slide (warning: there is a retarding coating inside the tubes!) usually are placed over the exit holes of the tubes (difficult to make out on the picture). März 2005.
