Hyatt Regency Sydney will light up Darling Harbour tonight with a video projected onto the side of the hotel.
The video will be an ‘inside-out’ hotel tour projected on to the 2800sqm harbour side of the building that was created to celebrate the official re-opening of the refurbished and re-branded hotel.
The animation will take spectators on a journey through Hyatt Regency Sydney from the perspective of two business and leisure guests. As the story unfolds, the characters unveil the results of the hotel’s $250 million redevelopment including a brand new 24-storey tower, additional rooms, rooftop bar, state-of-the-art meeting and event spaces and new Regency Club Lounge.
This ‘inside out’ tour was developed using projection mapping techniques, green screens and geometry building distortion to create this invigorating, playful and abstract animation. It will be projected onto the building using 16 projectors and a total of 28,348,800 pixels. Using a real play on scale and perspective, the video also highlights the size of what is now Australia’s largest upscale hotel.
The light show will play tonight every 15 minutes, starting from 8.30pm until 10.30pm.
