Cardiff Blue – interactive city model

Steve has sent us these fantastic pictures of the huge interactive model of Cardiff City that was displayed in Cannes earlier this year.

A massive 6.5 by 5.5 metres in size (that’s over 35m2), the model was designed and built to promote the city of Cardiff to national / international investors and took five months to construct.

Single-colour LEDs present Cardiff model to great effect

The cityscape had already been displayed at several venues – including a major launch in the Cardiff City football stadium attended by over 200 specially invited guests. But for its appearance at the Cannes MIPIM property expo, the model was enhanced by some brilliant blue LED backlighting from InStyle, installed by the Open Space Creative team.

Once the model has been re-installed in its Cardiff home again, Steve hopes that – with the support of Cardiff Council – he’ll be able to make the LED backlights a permanent part of the display very soon.

MIPIM, the world’s leading real estate event, brings together influential players from all international property sectors and offers unrivalled access to global development projects and sources of capital.
