last night, designboom has seen an intricate video mapping installation, which brought a choreographed play of light to one of milan, italy’s oldest and most famous edifices.

IGPdecaux, ammiro Y2K, and the archdiocese of milan created a projection for the façade of duomo for the city of milan. the ancient cathedral was brought to life through a 3D animation installation interacting with the elaborate decoration adorning the building’s exterior. first, the shape of the church was digitally mapped, taking into account the nooks and crevices, figures and layers existent in this massive neo-gothic/gothic church. the resulting design is one in which the building remains entirely unharmed as the ever-changing series of images interact with the existing architectural elements of the church’s exterior.

  • for video mapping a very elaborate exterior, i think the designers are off to a good start…

    @uncledj this projection was done in the middle east (but by an american company)
