(SFC) The Tokyo City Symphony has just launched a website showcasing the world’s first 3D projection mapping art on a 1:1000 miniature model of Tokyo offering viewers a bird’s eye view of the bidding city at (http://tokyocitysymphony.com).
The high technology site was launched by one of Japan’s most acclaimed urban developers, Mori Building, and commemorates the super complex Roppongi Hills' 10-year anniversary.
Viewers can "play" using their PC keyboards like a piano and compose their own soundtrack to go with the visuals.
"Tokyo City Symphony is a breathtaking concept to allow the world to explore our magnificent city through a dramatic fusion of music and color,” said Masato Mizuno, Tokyo 2020 CEO and Japanese Olympic Committee (JOC) Vice President. “It is visually stunning and is another demonstration of Tokyo being at the forefront of the world's innovations. Our Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games plan employs a similarly engaging process that fuses our people's passion for sport with a festival atmosphere of celebration throughout the entire city, including venues, fan trails, live sites and more."
The 1:1000 miniature model of Tokyo was also utilized for the 2009 IOC Evaluation Commission visit but has been updated as the city landscape has changed.
