The Montreal Biosphere is the only museum in North America dedicated solely to the environment – its mandate to raise awareness and encourage action on environmental issues. NGX is worked closely with the Biosphere to create a large-scale, immersive, and experiential interpretive space that explores the dynamics of urban ecosystems. Ambitious in scope and content, the breathtaking new space leaves a lasting impact on visitors.
Using Montreal as a model of an urban ecosystem, the centrepiece exhibit allows visitors to dive deeper into this concept through a custom-designed interactive game that features an eye-catching 3D model of Montreal, complete with cutting-edge projection animations that respond directly to game-play. A personalized RFID-driven profile allows visitors to cater their experience at all points of the exhibit, while an interactive 360-degree fresco film circling the entire space explores the key features of ecosystems.
I was impressed with the creativity, collaboration, and resilience of the NGX team. Visitors are truly immersed in the sound, art, film, animation, and interactivity on their journey to understanding Urban Ecosystems.
