How do you celebrate the success of a tremendous technological, logistical, and political effort "in the middle of nowhere"? To make the invisible resource of natural gas visible, TRIAD Berlin created an impressive camp scenery consisting of several oversized geodetic dome tents that formed the shape of a gas molecule. Here, TRIAD Berlin used 25 projectors to create a 360° projection turning the success story of the European project into a three-dimensional experience. The highlight of the ceremony was the "Vision Film" that put the audience right in the middle of the creation of the pipeline.

 

The inauguration of Europe's longest offshore natural gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea marked a historic moment and received enormous media coverage. Among the guests were Gerhard Schröder, Dmitry Medvedev, Angela Merkel, and François Hollande.
