3D reconstruction of 6 buildings Art nouveau
Evocation by projection and interactive discovery with touch screens
Art and multimedia, it can be done! The Musée Fin-de-Siècle Museum uses multimedia tools to present the Art Nouveau architecture of the 1900’s in an interactive and fun way.
Five multi-touch screens enable visitors to view 3D images of both the exterior and the interior of six art nouveau houses: the Maison du Peuple (House of the People) and Hôtel Aubecq of Victor Horta, the Bloemenwerf House of Henry Van de Velde, the Ciamberlani Hotel of Paul Hankar, the Fernand Knopff House and the Old England former shops of Paul Saintenoy.
The screens are easily controlled with the fingers, images can be dragged, enlarged or reduced. The games integrated in the application will appeal to young and old alike and test their learning.
The high energy efficiency of the multimedia installation is made possible through the use of motion detectors, fully automated system and projectors using LED-laser hybrid technology.
The Musée Fin-de-Siècle Museum visioguide leads you into a swirling, interactive story about the visual arts, the literature, music, photography and cinematography, taking place between 1868 and 1914. Michel Draguet (General manager) welcomes the public in his video presentation and curators Inga Rossi-Schrimpf, Dominique Marechal and Francisca Vandepitte comment on several works by Meunier, Khnopff, Spilliaert and Minne. The art collector Anne Marie Gillion Crowet tells the story of the beginning and the building up of the magnificent Art nouveau collection which has now found its place in the Musée Fin-de-Siècle Museum. You can listen to beautiful music by Lekeu and Fauré, and you can hear Ensor playing the harmonium. There are also many photographs illustrating the fin-de-siècle Brussels.
An exciting discovery not to be missed.
