Competition to create an interpretation center for the Lascaux cave
As part of the MAP Arquitectos - Projectiles group, Reciproque was in charge of designing the audiovisual and multimedia offering for the exhibition space located before the entrance to the replica and at the exit of the adjoining interpretation center. The purpose of the design is to stir up an emotional response from the visitor, to elicit understanding without imposing a prepared statement. Paradigms of self-discovery, revelation and learning are the guiding concepts behind the design for the mediation experiences. The visitor is constantly interacting with the life-sized reconstructed wall.
The mediation plays with shadow and light to reveal the figures in the wall and to unlock the meanings behind the painting. It relies on learning approaches that involve moving, touching and taking action, all essential to understanding the paintings.
With regard to the content, Reciproque created an editorial and graphic charter. Over the course of the competition, Reciproque produced a number of prototypes for the interactive concepts which were incorporated into the project outline and presentation film.
