Evolution Live Events was tasked to design and build a giant replica of a 4000 year old Emirati ring on which is logo is based with in built water system and light.
The giant replica of the iconic Expo ring sat high up under the Al Wasl dome throughout the closing ceremony, reflecting the lights and scenes around it, before lowering in spectacular fashion over two protagonists as Norah Jones performed. The ring needed to be designed to hold a digital water curtain system, self-illumination with 120rm of embedded individually programable LEDs and was required to fly into the stage trap with a tolerance of around 20mm on each edge while supporting its own weight (up to 9tons) when it landed sub stage.
The second feature awarded to Evolution was to design and build the rolling arches which was to be placed as background for world renowned artist such as Christina Aguilera to perform on.
§The arches: 8 units of varied sizes served as rolling backdrops on the welcome stage at Al Wasal. A major consideration in designing the arches and their base structure was the need to transport them almost 1km over un-levelled flooring, gravels, paver stone and other surfaces.
