“Balancity – City in Balance” was Germany’s contribution to EXPO 2010 in China. Various media technology systems are used in every one of the 11 theme rooms as well as the outdoor area. The high point of the exhibition is located in the energy center: an LED pendulum sphere measuring three meters in diameter and featuring media projections. The sphere can be moved and influenced by visitor interaction. One of the major technical challenges here was the development and logistics of the sphere as a freely moving pendulum with regulated drive propulsion. medienprojekt p2 was responsible for technical planning and tendering, the organization of test set-ups as well as site supervision during construction of the sphere and the entire media technology fittings in the pavilion.
