Coca Cola's award-winning Vancouver Olympic Pavilion, an 8,600 square foot interactive experience fabricated and installed by Great Lakes Scenic Studios.
It doesn't get any bigger than the Olympics, and lead sponsor, Coca Cola, was looking for a fabrication partner that could handle the scale, complexity and logistics of their Open Happiness Olympic Pavilion. Great Lakes Scenic Studios was excited to get the nod and the opportunity to work on this spectacular world-class event.
The pavilion was made up of a number of different experiences to engage and entertain the participants. One of the highlights, as seen in the photo below, was the official Coca Cola Perfect Serve Bar, where people queued to receive a free bottle of Coke served at the Perfect Serve temperature of exactly 4 degrees Celsius. Construction features include temperature-controlled chilling bath for the product, fog effect, lighting, and a custom fabricated ice bar.
Another popular part of the pavilion was the History Corridor, as seen below. It highlighted Coca Cola's support of the Olympic games since 1928. The area included Olympic Torches from past games, a person who popped out of the wall to give some background on Coke's participation in the Olympic movement, as well as a graffiti wall where fans left their own Olympic sentiment.
Some of the fan favourites were the interactive games. In the photo directly below we see the Polar Bear game that saw players shake rattle and roll in order to save the polar bears. The next photo shows the Recycling Game where participants needed to catch recyclable items and deposit them into the appropriate containers to rack up points.
As part of Coca Cola's effort towards environment responsibility, we constructed an elaborate recycling station where people would place their empty pop bottles in a chamber and watch them be whisked away and deposited for recycling. The theatrical nature of this exercise provided a platform to reinforce the recycling message in an engaging and memorable way.
