Winner in the Leisure and Entertainment category: Kraftwerk Living Technologies, Magic Glaze 5D, China
The prize-winning project is a multisensory attraction for 800 guests with an immersive 360° dome screen and a stunning 3D film production, supported by exciting special effects as well as precise motion of the SFX Motion Seats developed by Kraftwerk LT, and was also the largest contract in the Austrian’s company history so far.
As part of the project scope, Kraftwerk LT, who were design-build vendor of the entire venue, accounted responsible for the technical design, detailed planning, supply, integration, programming and commissioning of the unique theater as well as the attraction design together with LSK Hongkong and the 3D film production with partner Prana Studios Los Angeles.
“What is special about this theater project is the seamless integration of the main theme – porcelain craftsmanship – into the 1.1 km2 cultural center. When entering the theater, you walk into the interior of a flaming oven – realized with scenic lighting, complex projection technology, special effects as well as 1,600 audio speakers for acoustic support. With this ‘flaming’ atmosphere, the stage is set for an unforgettable experience”, explains Manfred Meier, Managing Partner and CEO at Kraftwerk LT.
