A lot of audiovisual technologies have been implemented in this work.
Amongst others, a giant application in the form of games was installed. It looks like a rectangular interactive furniture composed of 400 telescopic modules 40 x 40 cm at lower level each one with its own digital control. Then each identical rectangular parallelepiped module is activated separately to take a position between 0.0 m and 3.80 m.

Algorithms based on scientific research are applied to the control motors of each module. Thus each set illustrates a specific layout of futuristic "Better Cities, Better Lives" concepts of tomorrow's cities, by positioning each module at a precise height. This unique moving model offers a spectacular three-dimensional rendering. Video projections corresponding to the contents are mapped on each configuration.

Implementation of many impressive video projections of more than 10 m of base as well as a tower of Babel composed of leds tiles.

The general theme was "better cities, better life" and the Pavilion of the Future we have been developing with IngeniaQed has presented not only science fiction visions, but also realistic visions applicable in the next three years..
