Top 5 Innovative Projections On Iconic Landmarks

Urban Screen's designs on Sydney Opera House.

The best way to make a statement? Project designs of your visual creativity onto historical and iconic buildings where everyone can see. From national pride to fulfilling an original vision, these five designs each have something to say on these monuments of the centuries, according to Creative Bloq.

Check out these five and stay tuned for a similar upcoming article, "7 Works Of Projection On 7 Architectural Works Of Art."

5. Astronomical Clock in Prague, Czech Republic

The Macula and Tomato Productions used modern technology to map the medieval architecture of Prague's Astronomical Clock, built in 1410, in honor of the clock's 600th birthday.

4. Manhattan Bridge in New York City, NY, USA

Light Harvest projects these abstract designs onto the curved ceiling and face of the Manhattan Bridge, which was designed by Leon Moisseiff and opened in 1909.

3. Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia

The shell-like sails of the Sydney Opera House, designed by Jorn Utzon, ripple in the wind as the characteristic chevron tiles rotate and fall away. Urban Screen's designs are spot on, right down to how hair would slip over the curved surface as a projected woman slides over the rounded edges of the shell.

2. Hala Stulecia Museum of Architecture in Wroclaw, Poland

This permanent installation, called O (Omicron), is housed in Hala Stulecia. The projections highlight the structure of the dome, creating further appreciation for this piece of architecture, which Max Berg built in 1913, and was included on UNESCO's list of the world's heritage sites in 2006.

1. Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain

Antoni Gaudi's magnum opus, the Crypt of La Sagrada Familia, came to life with brilliant colors - as Gaudi originally wanted - realizing the forest that Gaudi wanted the interior to resemble. Moment Factory used a 3D scan to map out the complex geometry of the architectural feat, which was placed on UNESCO's list of world heritage sites in 1984, along with six other of his works.
