A Coruña City Hall
Design, production and technical operation
Multimedia show – A Coruña, Spain
The City Hall of A Coruña, in collaboration with ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño (APD), started off the municipal Christmas programme with the audiovisual show “The Star of Dreams”, which was projected on the façade of the Council building on 29 and 30 November with various showings each day.
For the occasion APD has designed a large scale audiovisual projection which used the mapping technique to take advantage of the façade of the Council building as a screen, using its surface and architectural volumes to create optical illusions and effects of movement. The large-scale 3D effects projection was combined with lights, music -which was composed especially for the show-, and special effects to increase the sensation of immersion.
“The Star of Dreams” is conceived as a Christmas story starring a girl who travels around the city with her father and through whose eyes we discover the Christmas of the city of A Coruña. The action if triggered by the wish the girl makes on a shooting star, which leads to a dreamlike trip around craft shops and traditional toy stores, bookshops, etc., which enhance imagination and creativity as a consubstantial element of children’s games. The dialogue between the girl and her father also stresses the fact that children can achieve their dreams and shape their future if they persevere and have dreams.
