RIEGL supports Venice Architecture Biennale 2014!

(09.09.2014)

RIEGL is proud to be a part of the “Gotthard Landscape: The Unexpected View” exhibition at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2014.

Two schools of architecture, the Department of Architecture at the ETH Zürich and the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio AAM, present with support from Pro Helvetia a project entitled «Gotthard Landscape: The Unexpected View».

The Gotthard Landscape exhibition examines the impact of NEAT (Neue Eisenbahn Alpentransversale), the world’s longest Alpine tunnel, in the historic Gotthard Range in the Swiss Alps. This project documents both visible and invisible changes to the landscape, mapping them in an “interactive digital sculpture” created with point cloud technology.

RIEGL is honored to sponsor this unique exhibition! The data showcased in the exhibit is LiDAR data acquired with RIEGL instruments and is demonstrated via RiALITY, the world’s first App for LiDAR data visualization!

“Using RIEGL’s high performance mobile and static laser scanners has made our data acquisition for this project extremely effective. Due to the seamless workflows and robust hardware, that operated under extremely harsh topography and climate in this alpine region, we were able to finish our data acquisition within a very short time. We are very delighted that RIEGL now also supports the exhibition of this spectacular project here at Biennale in Venice”, said Pascal Werner, ETH Zürich.

The exhibit has been named one of the top 25 exhibitions to visit by Wallpaper Magazine. The second run of the exhibition is running through October 5, 2014. Don’t miss this one of a kind exhibition!
