Projection Mapping Barcelona – Onionlab

Projection Mapping Barcelona

Barcelona, among other cities, also embraced the popularity and demand for the 3D mapping shows and therefore curated and organized mappings all over the city. 

Projection mapping is a form of urban art that has been appearing in cities throughout the world. This art of creating video displays makes buildings come alive in light, colour and motion. Using a powerful technology visually arresting video displays are projected on urban architecture.

Projection mappings in Barcelona were used at Llum BCN (annual light festival), La Mercé (annual festival of the city), various inaugurations and different celebrations of hotels, restaurants and museums. Onionlab, considered as pioneers of projection mapping, was commissioned various times to perform the projections.

Our most renowned and adapted mapping is Axioma, specifically created for the Llum BCN 2015 festival. This 3D mapping show was projected onto the façade of Palau Reial Major, in Plaça del Rei, for three days.

Projection mapping is a visual feast, some might say a new kind of fireworks, an extraordinary form of entertainment with an enormous wow factor. Projection mappings in cities provide the unique opportunity to attract and immerse large crowds with captivating shows and inspiring spectacles.
