Expo 2000 Hannover - German Theme park "Future of Work"
The first World Expo of the new Millennium was to take place in Hanover, Germany from June to October 2000. It combined all facets of event technology: From classic architecture and construction to high-end media installations.
THE PRODUCTION FACTORY was contracted by the producers of the German Theme Park to take over technical production management for the topic ‘Future of Work‘, the architecture of which was designed by French mastermind Jean Nouvel. The project was comprised of a huge scaffolding structure equipped with blue screens and live video cameras, lots of projection screens, intricate lighting and a sophisticated sound installation. All of it was brought to live by Belgium's dance company Charleroi/Danses.
In the lobby of the exhibition hall, the task was to design and build a series of huge glass tables equipped with ‘touch-less’ touch screens; this was achieved by a new infrared tracking technology and floor mounted video projectors.
