Italy: The architect team of Mario Cuccinella, Elena Lavezzo and Enrico Iascone has created a spectacular setting for the new Urban Centre of Bologna, eBo. In the 1,000 m2 underground multi-media centre, visitors can catch a glimpse of the city's future.
As a symbolic gateway to the future, two cylinders built in glass and acrylic rise from the ground at the famous Piazza Re Enzo in the historical centre of Bologna. These sculptural glass structures are sited at the entrance of the new Urban Centre of Bologna - an underground exhibition area of more than 1,000 m2, packed with modern AV and multimedia solutions.
eBo (esposizione Bologna) was created by the municipality of Bologna to provide citizens with information about future urban projects in the form of film, video, photos,drawings and 3D animations. The centre is also used for presentations, theme exhibitions, press conferences,
meetings and video conferences.
Managing Director Mr. Alessandro Aldisio of Media Service srl., who is responsible for the total AV multimedia solution, explains:
- The City of Bologna wanted to create a spectacular visual effect to greet visitors at the entrance hall. And we decided that a flying screen installation with three dnp rear projection displays would match the futuristic interior design perfectly. It would also provide the best image quality in the bright room, which is bathed in daylight pouring in through the acrylic structure.
