In November 2017, the building application was submitted to the building authorities of the City of Stuttgart. Construction approval was granted in summer 2018. The construction of the platform will be completed at the end of March 2019 with following tendering and award procedures. The aim is to complete the basic structure of the demonstrator by 2019. In October 2021, the demonstrator high-rise building (D1244) was opened in the presence of the State Minister Theresia Bauer, Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts. In the further research years, adaptive façades will also be developed, realised at D1244, evaluated and optimised.

The demonstrator is the largest adaptive structure and the first adaptive building in the world. There is great interest in new and innovative ideas for building in the future. There are already numerous scientific publications by the researchers involved and the press is also showing great interest. There are publications in regional newspapers, various interviews with researchers and podcast contributions.
