For their awards gala in support of the UJA-Federation of NYC, the Discovery Channel wanted to create an atmosphere that inspired exploration. For the evening’s theme, they chose the universe. By considering all surfaces of the event space, we created an artful design response, utilizing leading technology to bring the night sky inside. The event venue, 583 Park Avenue, offered a beautiful open space featuring a large domed ceiling. We digitally mapped the sweeping dome, projecting animated content for guests to marvel at during the evening. Our custom surround sound system enhanced the experience and allowed for a show-stopping presentation. Intelligent lighting was implemented throughout the room to further support the design and tone of the evening. The gala was live streamed and broadcasted to the Discovery Channel’s network through our onsite high speed network.
