Tomorrowland ... The most wonderful and insane dance festival in the world opened its doors for the 8th time. And ... not just the doors opened!

The book of wisdom ...

The 130m wide, 23m high and 96T heavy main stage built by Gigant Stage Builders was the eye catcher of the festival. Two giant video screens were built in the middle of the stage this year. Each screen had a height of 10m and a width of 7m. The screens opened and closed like a giant book! We designed a structure to move each page separately, so the book could open any way wanted. To hold the video, we built 2 frames with a strong hinge in between.

Because of huge reaction forces on the scaffolding (the book + structure= 21,5T) a secondary structure was needed to hold the pages. A strong tower structure was built inside the scaffolding to deal with these forces.

The entire structure was calculated to deal with winds up to 74km/h when the book was moving. When the book was completely opened, the structure was calculated to deal with winds up to 105km/h. In this way maximum safety was guaranteed in all circumstances!

Around our steel structure a wonderful decoration was being built. At the end of the day The Book Of Wisdom was finished and ready to amaze!
