RICHTI-AREAL SHOWROOM

A fully interactive architecture showroom

PROJEKTIL created an interactive augmented reality installation. 5 projectors mapping an architectural model in scale 1 : 200.

Over the same model, various simulations (nightlife, sun and shadow, etc.) can be shown, as well as information (use zones, green areas, transport etc.).

Not only the mapped model projection is controlled remotely by an iPad, but the whole space! This includes 44 dimmable dali lamps, 6 DMX lamps, 9 beamers, a touchscreen and the audio system.
