of Wisdom” is actually a huge supporting structure for two giant video screens
that can open and close at any time during the show. 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
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!
