This project is to develop a visitor centre showcasing a new SMART city being developed in Tianjin to a master-plan by Skidmore Owings and Merrill.

The centre will host interactive displays and models of the new town, with virtual fly-throughs of the various neighbour-hoods and precincts. 

Highlights include a 360degree circlevision video introduction, a giant interactive model with visitor-controlled projection-mapped overlays which bring it to life, and a 3D cinematic fly through the virtual town.

The exhibition is arranged on two levels around a glazed, landscaped atrium which features a full-height living green wall, with embedded digital information monitoring the building’s environmental performance in real-time.
