BUILT BY EVENTSCAPE AUGUST, 2017
Paul Bernhard Exhibits approached Eventscape to engineer, fabricate and install part of the new Wiess Energy Hall permanent exhibition they designed. This custom “Future Energy” auto display featured a frame and textile ribbon supporting a “car of the future” and numerous interactive kiosks. The dark grey textile stretched around the curved edges and created a surface for projection of colors and video.
The complex curved aluminum frame was over 15-feet tall by 26-feet wide by 56-feet long and completely self-supporting. The frame was engineered to fit exactly around the interactive digital media tables where the public could learn more about the display. Eventscape engineered two metal jigs – one for Paul Bernhard Exhibits and one for Eventscape’s shop to coordinate the complex connection angle where Eventscape’s frame met the ramp that supported the futuristic car.
