From July 22 to August 14, the buildings around the Petite Rade de Genève turn into the scene of a video mapping show.
For one hour, the Arcade des Arts on the Pont de la Machine, the Hôtel des Bergues, the Quai des Bergues and the Quai du Général-Guisan are lit up by projectors that create animations, visual patterns and atmospheres on the façades. The scenes follow one another in a colourful choreography, appealing to the viewer’s imagination. The Rhône also takes part in the show and reveals itself in a play of lights and reflections.
The mapping projections honour Geneva and Swiss themes: nature, fine watchmaking, international Geneva, science and arts.
In an enchanting atmosphere, this light show transfigures its environment and adapts to the buildings’ shapes and reliefs, thus enhancing their façades.
Each building is the subject of a ten-minute animation, projected continuously for one hour, allowing bystanders to admire the façades in motion. The mapping show comes with a musical playlist available online, to be listened to from one’s phone.
