Projection mapping, better known as video mapping, is a technology that uses objects, usually irregular in shape, as the screen (display) to show a video projection. The objects can be complex industrial buildings or theater stages. Using specialized two-dimensional or three-dimensional software, objects are spatially mapped through a virtual program that mimics the real environment projected on it. The video mapping project began in 2015, with a displaying on the facade of the History Museum in Sarajevo. Partners in this project are: LIFT- SPATIAL INITIATIVES, Blow Up, Walter and Billain.
For the 10th Days of Architecture we chose the building of the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina. On the facade of the museum the video mapping will be shown on May 17th at 20.30h. The National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina - is the oldest museum institution in Bosnia and Herzegovina, founded on February the 1st 1888, during the Austro-Hungarian reign. Architect Karlo Paržik did the project for the museum, which consists of four separate pavilions, interconnected with terraces, with an internal atrium that accommodates the botanical garden. The building was designed in a Neo-Renaissance style. It is interesting to note that this is the only museum building in South East Europe that is intentionally built for this purpose.
