Immersive Lalibela. Wonder of an African Kingdom provides a spectacular immersive and interactive experience at the heart of the monolithic churches of Lalibela, a treasure of World Heritage in Africa.
A GEM NESTLED IN THE HIGHLANDS OF ETHIOPIA
Lalibela is a unique site of architecture, history, religion and art in Africa, where 11 monumental churches carved out of rock, below ground, stand as powerful testimonies to the Medieval Kingdom ruled by King Lalibela and unique symbols of Christianity.
« Immersive Lalibela is designed to provide an engaging multi layered discovery experience, where visitors of all ages are transported to the highlands of Ethiopia for a shared moment of wonder, learning and enjoyment. »
The immersive discovery takes visitors through 6 galleries, where stunning photography and high-resolution 3D images and large views, combined with panels, totems and scenographic displays provide a warm and immersive aesthetic. Large projections and monumental displays, alternating with smaller spaces and personal encounters, are evocative of the labyrinthic, mysterious and spectacular nature of the site.
The experience is designed to provide opportunities for contemplation, learning and interactivity, with low tech and high tech moments, with climax engagement points and space to reflect and enjoy.
The exhibition has been designed with high technological value throughout the visitor journey, creating an immersive and interactive experience with a variety of curated tech moments, where visitors can engage with stories and content through contemporary technologies, such as projection mapping, holographic mixed reality, virtual reality, video totems, and interactive stations.
« Founded upon an ambitious research project carried out on the site by an international multidisciplinary team, with an exceptional 3D research programme, Immersive Lalibela plunges the visitor in the rich and complex history of Lalibela, from the rise of the mysterious churches to today, linking together art, history, archaeology, religion and geology perspectives, for a unique discovery journey. »
