The Intercontinental Lyon – Hotel Dieu is one of the oldest buildings in the city. Originally a hospital – the oldest in the region – it has since been used as a hotel and has undergone massive renovation over the past three years. The Hotel-Dieu reopened in its new guise last year, but only a few days ago it officially celebrated its opening, offering guests and spectators a unique spectacle. It was a lighting show curated by the French creative agency Tetro.
Inside the large 32-meter high dome, the symbol of the building, images were projected ad hoc sewn onto the shape of the dome, exploiting its depth above all.
The fil rouge that was followed in the creation of the projections was the journey, but declined in different ways: from the great journeys of explorers in 1700 to expeditions to the depths of the seas and oceans, up to space missions.
The spectator, seated in the atrium and with his nose upwards, is wrapped in these images made with plays of light and transported for a few minutes into a parallel universe.
