Lightshow Bundeshaus – Stories on the parliament

Every year, when the days get shorter and the night falls earlier and earlier, the Swiss parliament building becomes a huge canvas.

This year, a group called «Lumine» from Vienna has the honour to show their skills in 3D-mapping, presenting a story about a better world. Not a simple task, they say: the Bundeshaus has an ornate façade, every little part of stucco work has to be taken into consideration when planning the light show. This year’s edition «Planet Hope» addresses climate change and sustainable power industries, it comments on plastic pollution, on sustainable food and shows peacefully coexisting societies.

When it comes to visual effects, this year’s show «Planet Hope» is one of the best I’ve ever seen! Dancing patterns that seem to shake the whole building, bright colours and beautfiul dreamlike worlds. Compared to other years, the sound system isn’t used to its full possibilities and the story is a bit over-the-top melodramatic but it’s definitely and undoubtedly totally worth to check it out.

Corona-Rules apply, you can only enter the square after registering by app or on paper. No food trucks or drinks available this year, mask mandatory…
