New York, NY, USA — WorldStage provided Stimulant’s experiential designers with innovative video projection solutions for two interactive attractions at the new Skyspace LA. Nearly 1,000 feet above the city in the iconic US Bank Tower, Skyspace LA is the tallest open-air observation deck in California. It has quickly become the premiere destination for panoramic, 360º views of Los Angeles.
The US Bank Tower requires visitors to transfer between elevator banks to get to the top. Stimulant was charged with creating an exciting transition for visitors as they work their way to the grand reveal of the view and one-of-a-kind Skyslide on the 70th floor. WorldStage partnered with Stimulant on the interactive 360 Landscape and Reflection Wall experiences.
“The vision for the space necessitated complex engineering within a very complicated set of constraints. WorldStage brought deep experience and innovative solutions to the project every step of the way, and together we delivered a set of experiences that far outshone everyone’s expectations,” says Stimulant CEO, Darren David.
360 Landscape is a 50 x 30-foot interactive projection-mapped ellipsoid space, which surrounds visitors with an abstract representation of the topography of LA as rendered from the viewpoint of the tower. Visitors trigger playful, animated graphics showing points of interest visible from the top floor. A specialized video mode features custom-produced content at up to 11,520 x 1,200 resolution synchronized across two separate walls.
WorldStage designed, specified and installed the nine-projector theater for the ellipse mural. WorldStage chose Christie Digital DWU-600-G projectors for their excellent image quality and quiet operation. The interactive display feed was warped with ImmersaView Warp software. WorldStage also installed an audio system equipped with JBL speakers.
The unique Reflection Wall is an interactive experience that uses pixels to create personalized reflective images. It captures visitors’ movements and motion and translates them into vivid graphics.
WorldStage designed, specified and installed a four-projector, 21-foot column of video for the Silhouette Wall. It is equipped with Christie DWU-600-G projectors. A separate Matrox controller provides LED lighting control for a custom-designed, reactive infinity mirror lighting element.
For WorldStage, Josh Weisberg was the system architect, TJ Donoghue project manager, Bryan Dominick lead engineer and Marcus Garfunkel programmer.
