An audiovisual performance within the scope of the 100th anniversary of the William Marsh Rice University in Houston, Texas, USA.
Rice invited URBANSCREEN to stage the academic quadrangle during its Centennial Celebration. The Spectacle chronicles the university´s history by interpreting different decades and its inspiring story.
With a 270° approach and a persistent length of 240m projection as well as full spatial sound (6.1), it was a great immersive experience and a pleasure for us to mingle with the centennial audience on the campus.
