[Thursday, January 18] MGM COTAI, a US$3.4 billion integrated resort, today unveils one of the most exciting elements of the resort – Spectacle, an innovative, multi-dimensional sensory experience that makes the forthcoming resort a must-visit destination for the new year.
Soon to become Macau’s most innovative integrated resort, offering never-been-seen-before experiences for guests, Spectacle is the epicenter of entertainment at MGM COTAI. Located at the heart of the resort, Spectacle is over 4-stories high, spanning the length of a soccer field. It is a meticulously engineered column-free long-span diagrid structure. The space will seem to be alive, continually evolving and responding to changing conditions such as visitor behaviors, weather, time of day or season, which will provide an immersive, multi-dimensional sensory experience.
“Everyone wants to know what is Spectacle… It’s a digital canvas, a reflective space, it’s mesmerizing, whimsical and entertaining. You really have to see with your own eyes to understand it - we look forward to welcoming our guests from Macau and around the world to immerse in this experience soon,” said Mr. Grant Bowie, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of MGM China Holdings Limited. “MGM COTAI is a property of discovery. We are not only building a luxury integrated resort, but creating an experience that continues to surprise and captivate our guests. With Spectacle, we provide an interactive and ever-changing experience to our guests to create great memories at MGM COTAI.”
Exclusive Digital Art Collection Showcases the Beauty of the World
MGM COTAI’s Spectacle comprises the world’s largest area of permanent indoor LED screens, which showcases an exclusive array of digital art collected from around the globe. Featuring some of the world’s renowned artists including: Joel Sartore, Magda Indigo, Garth Williams, Rob Kesseler and Wolfgang Stuppy, Spectacle sets a platform for the artists to reveal the beauty of the world including several UNESCO World Heritage Sites of China, furthering MGM’s mission of bringing the world to China and China to the world. The digital art comprises the element of nature, art, music, language, and culture for guests to discover and understand the world by inspiring them to perceive it in a different way.
To create an awe inspiring experience, MGM spent months capturing natural wonders of Asia with the latest filming technologies to produce over seven hours of exclusive content under six themes for Spectacle. The footage will be showcased on Spectacle’s 25 LED screens and was co-created with Obscura Digital, a creative studio that combines innovative technology with beautiful artistry to create unparalleled immersive experiences at scale.
Nature’s Art with over 2,000 Plants Species
The theme of “Art in Nature” expands beyond digital media, into other elements of the Spectacle interior. Complementing the technology is the world’s largest indoor art garden, dubbed Nature’s Art. Spectacle will house more than 100,000 plants and over 2,000 plant species including more than 200 different orchid species, many of which are native to Macau and Hong Kong. Several extinct species, dating from the 19th and 20th century, were specially brought back to life using botanical garden seed banks in Hong Kong and Europe. Spectacle also depicts different forms of Chinese landscape through real, live plants that are carefully choreographed and interwoven to recreate magnificent sceneries. This indoor art garden was conceived by Bai Mingzhu and Antoine Nerval, young rising landscape artists.
Spectacle is created in partnership with some of the industry’s best architectural experts, including Rockwell Group, which created the overall design concept. The LED walls and their contents are a collaboration with digital, visual and audio experts including: Obscura Digital, Smart Monkeys Inc., Electrosonic Inc, VER and LAB at Rockwell Group. It is programmed with an incredible collection of 1,000 meters of ultra-high definition LED displays, with more than 700 LED lights, combined with over 130 high-performance speakers in one atrium space.
