As part of Union Station’s free summer public programs, from July 15 – 24 the station’s South Patio will be transformed into an evocative multi-media environment with the innovative experience Union Station 360°. The attraction was created by the award winning local experiential design firm The Hettema Group, responsible for some of the world’s most recognized interactive attractions ranging from the recently opened One World Observatoryat the World Trade Center to Las Vegas’ High Roller to Universal Studios Islands of Adventureto Jurassic Park The Ride.
Union Station’s state-of-the-art, multi-sensory 360° experience will transport guests on an extraordinary interactive journey through the unique cultural fabric of L.A. with a series of imaginative vignettes exploring the city’s storied past and vibrant present. The Hettema Group teamed with filmmakers and digital artists to create original cinemagraphs that will be viewed, on a massive cutting-edge projection sphere and across a Floating Sky Screen, accompanied by a hypnotic original score.
The station’s massive entry arches will become the backdrop to a 30-foot-high, projection mapped art and video installation that will respond to visitors’ movements; and guests can move freely throughout the garden beneath the translucent Floating Sky Screen bathed in iconic Los Angeles imagery.
Union Station will be transformed into a towering canvas for dazzling imagery beamed on its façade as audiences become fully immersed in the Union Station 360° experience.
