Immersive Architectural Experience

A geodesic dome's interior is covered in live aerial imagery of Toronto, immersing guests in a spherical drone's eye view of Toronto. Planeterreaum inverts the relationship of the people to the city; up will be down, the horizon at eye level and buildings fading into the sky above. Viewers experience the cityscape as it evolves throughout the night; Scotiabank Nuit Blanche as a whole seen from above, lighting up the city in a festival of lights and sounds. The dome responds to the differing characters of the city as it morphs, from sunset, to midnight and finally to sunrise, bringing interior and exterior environments together.

F_RMlab is an emerging group of digital designers and fabricators from the University of Waterloo's School of Architecture.
