Opened in June 2016, La Cité du Vin is the world’s largest visitor centre dedicated to the story of wine. Its permanent exhibition, designed by Casson Mann, is a spectacular, innovative and playful series of displays, choreographed into a rich and entertaining visitor experience.
El Wu Kingdom Helv Relic Museum abrió al público a principios de 2014. Se encuentra en Wuxi, China, a unos 140 km. de Shanghai. Como culmen al recorrido expositivo en el que se concentra la historia de la Dinastía Wu, se halla el espectáculo audiovisual diseñado por ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño, que lleva al visitante en un viaje a través del tiempo, merecedor del premio Red Dot Design en la categoría de "Comunicación Espacial" en 2014.
La instalación multimedia cuenta con la pantalla inmersiva más grande del mundo hasta la fecha (650 m²). El conjunto, formado por un suelo interactivo de 400 m² y una pantalla de proyección de 250 m², lleva al visitante por un viaje a lo largo de los cinco capítulos en los que se narra la historia del Reino de Wu (514-496 a.C.). Con capacidad para acoger a 3.840 personas cada día, la experiencia de APD en la gestión del flujo de visitantes ha sido clave para el diseño eficiente de este espacio.
ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño has designed the spectacular audiovisual that is located on the ground floor of the museum and forms the culminating moment of the exhibition itinerary. It has the largest immersive and interactive screen in the world up to date (650 m²) that, together with the 400 m² interactive floor and the 250 m² projection screen, takes the visitor on a journey along the five chapters.
Lake Tahiu, the king’s palace, the battle field, the city’s founders and Wu’s landscape make up the settings where the visitors can feel and interact with the spectacular scenes in the history of the Kingdom of Wu. The multi-media installation has capacity for 3,840 visitors a day. APD’s experience in flow management has been the key to the efficiency of the design.

The Ark is a site specific installation, commissioned by and presented during Proyecta Oaxaca, festival de diseño y artes digitales.
The Ark is built around the cacti that line the Aljibe, at the heart of the Ethnobotanical Garden of Oaxaca.
Adopting a poetic approach, The Ark gives voice to the garden’s plants, participants in the work, the beating heart of the space and an unpredictable choir.
Telling their story, revealing their fantasised and fantastical character, The Ark is the mise-en-abîme of the trail. A three part audio-visual installation, it unfolds like a movie set in space, in which the wandering spectator plays the role of the camera.
On the invitation of Proyecta Oaxaca, several artists from the ANTIVJ visual label have devised four visual and sonic works to be installed at the heart of the Ethnobotanical Garden in Oaxaca. Conceived of as a trail of light, these in-situ works offered the chance to (re)discover a singular and magical location in a particularly unique way – by opening the garden to the public at night.
A trail of the senses, in several variations, it also presents spectators the perspective of four artists on this atypical space, in which ancient nature and new technology come face to face, like a distant echo of the ancestral techniques that have allowed for its conservation.
The trail consisted of the following four works:
Onion Skin, by Olivier Ratsi & Thomas Vaquié
The Ark, by Romain Tardy & Squeaky Lobster

In the fall of 2013, the Hans Christian Andersen Museum [museum.odense.dk/en/museums/hans-christian-andersen-museum] in Odense Denmark opened an interactive fairy-tale room inviting visitors of the museum into the world known fairy-tale, The Little Mermaid, by Hans Christian Andersen. The exhibition is the result of a close collaboration between the Museum and Kollision [kollision.dk/]. The title, ‘Transformations’, refers to the many ambiguities in meaning and appearance throughout H. C. Andersen writings. The title also reflects an ambition of keeping the poetry and mystery of the fairy-tale intact by balancing a wordless and abstract experience-oriented installation with only partly known aspects and references to the world of Hans Christian Andersen. The installation is based on the idea that Andersen's universe should be experienced and felt – not only read and understood, signalling a new beginning and ambition for the Museum; to bring the magic of Andersen’s fairy-tales alive.
THE FAIRY-TALE ROOM
In a dark space, accessed by a descending stairway, the visitor dives into a sunken world, immersed in a gloomy and shifting underwater soundscape, and faced with a landscape of surfaces resembling H. C. Andersen's papercuts. The landscape is brought to life through a mix of realistic and abstract underwater scenery. Visitors activate content projected onto the surfaces by entering interactive zones, triggering story elements from "The Little Mermaid" – but, according to the theme of ‘Transformations’, not always quite as expected. The scenery is constantly changing, an underwater castle appears, parts of a statue reveals itself, schools of fish and a jellyfish appears in the distance and you get surprised by tentacles reaching out for you. Some elements are brought to life by the dynamic sound; others are just fleeting glimpses of narratives, appearing briefly before they are lost again in the darkness of the ocean.
Kollision, in dialogue with the Hans Christian Andersen Museum, has designed the soundscape; the visual identity and the set design, including development of the hardware layout, the sensor system and programming the dynamic player setup. Projectors and speaker system has been installed by ProShop AV and Boye Inventar has handled the laser cutting.
