About the project

A solstice is the time of year when the sun reaches its furthest point from the equator. In the northern hemisphere, the summer solstice is the longest day and the winter solstice is the shortest.
This project will be an opportunity to express this dichotomy between the “day” and “night” parts of the project; It will start from the immensity of the celestial sphere to connect to mythology and the festivals celebrated during these periods of Summer and Winter.
First of all, we will deal with the Roman mythologies linked to the summer solstice to evoke the Romanness of Frejus through emblematic architectural elements of the City.
Summer will settle in a sunrise, seeds, plants and flowers awakening.
Summer deities will invade the facade then in a whirlwind of flowers recalling Midsommar, the Scandinavian solstice festival, the facade will be adorned with crowns of vibrant and twirling flowers.
A bonfire, evoking St. John's Day, will illuminate the facade before letting the Earth set off on its course around the Sun to discover the winter period.
We will then discover in a mysterious and mystical way, the evocation of different legends of Winter, such as the celebrations of the Scandinavian peoples, Sol Invictus, Roman festivities made to the Sun, and finally the magical and snowy periods of Christmas.
An opportunity to mix science and myth in a great pendulum between the seasons.

Service used

Video mapping

Video mapping is a technique that allows you to project videos on all types and sizes of surfaces.

Whatever the building, the projection plays on the optical illusion between the real relief and the virtual second skin.
The video mapping increases and sublimates the architecture it illuminates.

We provide turnkey solutions suitable for all types of projects and locations.
