Conceived and developed by ALTA_International Creative Alliance, the Interpretation Centre of the Ericeira World Surfing Reserve is a highly innovative and interactive project that uses cutting edge technology to create a unique immersive experience.
A custom-made video-mapping system, projecting over a 4-metre-long model of the Reserve presents and explains all of its main characteristics. At the centre of this experiential platform is an interactive table - a topographical model of the Reserve, along with a bathymetric relief of the area. Using advanced projection and video-mapping technologies the table encourages the public to participate through a process that is truly dynamic and engaging. Commanded by a touch screen that interacts with the model through projections and video-mapping, the table also includes 7 iPads with information about each of the Reserve’s 7 waves, which can be consulted individually.
This technology-driven interpretation centre is an important contribution to the environmental sustainability of this region. It is a revolutionary communication model, and was completely designed and created for this purpose, through the use of highly complex software and technology.
