The concept features among others:
The implementation under the starboard and port hull of the Canot de l'Empereur of two LED screens of 16 w x 1.5 m. The displayed images are reflected in a long mirror on the ground.
A large projection of 8 m in diameter on a circular screen connects in some way, the three levels of the exhibition hall. The building inside is designed in the shape of keels of boats by architects Brochet-Lajus-Pueyo. A great diversity of video projections has been implemented to reinforce the themes presented: interactive projection inside a sphere, ultra-short focal length of round shapes, stratirama, holopro on glass, interactive floor carpet.
All the audiovisual partners and some of the lighting are controlled and monitored by networks.
70.8 Pôle Maritime de Brest is housed in 1,400 square meters of the former Ateliers des Capucins. Each of its three levels offers a discovery trail, to meet the "best of the oceans": the sea as a source of life, with marine biotechnologies, renewable energies and deep-sea exploration. The second theme is "climate watch", with the ambition to share current knowledge about the ocean. Finally, the last floor offers a dive into navigation at sea, with virtual visits of submarines or Ultime category boats, the Formula 1 of the seas. The objective of 70.8 is to raise awareness of the fact that the oceans are major players on a global scale.
An ecosystem at the origin of life on earth... and the possibility of living there again tomorrow: the ocean regulates the climate and abounds in food resources.
The Emperor's canoe is exhibited in the large nave of the Capucins. It is one of the highlights of the National Maritime Museum's collection. Its elegant silhouette emerges at the entrance to the 70.8 and impresses visitors with its size (almost 19 m long) and its history. The canoe, built in only 21 days in 1810, links the past and the future.
