At the Astana 2017 Expo in Kazakhstan, Hypsos was selected as general contractor to create, fabricate and install the Algeria Pavilion including multimedia for the Office of the Prime Minister of the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria.
The design team of the Algeria pavilion was comprised of Hypsos, Expo Pavilion Group / gestalt communications gmbh for design and MCW / Creative for audiovisual production. Algeria is a Land of Light and in Astana Expo 2017 the story of Algeria is told in an immersive visitor journey. The narrative of a preshow-mainshow-postshow takes the visitor by the hand and uses light and media to narrate about the energy ambitions of the country, as well as display a variety of historical, human, ecological, natural and sociological aspects of the North African country.
The highlight of the exhibition is the Main Show, displayed on a 14 meter x 6 meter curved projection screen, using 4 projectors and a 80 cm video sphere presentation. The multimedia team travelled to Algeria and captured in 4K resolution astounding images of the diverse landscape and culture of the country set against an interesting storyline using reflections of the sun.
