Case study: Trieste Expo 2008

The city of Trieste was candidate to hosting the international exhibition Expo 2008; one of the most important factors judged by the BIE (Bureau International des Expositions) committee of inquiry was the urban and infrastructure layout of the region, that has to grant an effective access and hospitality for millions of people coming from every part of the world.
For the BIE examination session of June 23, 2004 in Paris, Arsenal prepared a virtual reality software that was presented on a 5x1.8-meters panoramic screen with two projectors having a power of light of 10,000 ANSI Lumen each. The Virtual Reality of this application reproduces the Region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia and the bordering regions of Slovenia and Croatia in 3D graphics; a large area of the Region is covered by orthorectified pictures.
As all Arsenal projects, this one too allows the free movement in the scene in real time and is equipped with interactive functions for the representation of data regarding the general logistics of the Exhibition.

The buildings and port infrastructures of the city of Trieste are all in 3D and part of the historical buildings, situated by the sea and in the city centre are reproduced with photorealistic quality.

The BIE commission had the opportunity to enter the access gates of the region, examine the intermodal exchange junctions of the transport routes, verify the traffic flow data and judge the environmental impact of the projected urban and architectural solutions.
