Android at Barcelona's Mobile World Congress
We currently have a substantial crew of 140+ in Barcelona who have just completed the installation of Android Works, a series of experiential environments at the annual Mobile World Congress.
This large project for our friends at BrandFuel has been in production for over four months, working its way through our different workshops before being test built in our dedicated hangar, dismantled and shipped to site. It’s our third year working with BrandFuel at the MWC, the creative brief each year delivering an entirely different prospect for fabrication and construction.
This year, the outside plot was divided into eight zones, providing a range of experiences and activations for delegates to enjoy. Steel work skeleton structures with gently curved edges were infilled and clad internally with oiled birch ply cladding, accents of colour added along the curved edges. At 4m high by 6m by 12m, the largest outdoor structure was the Android Auditorium, tiered bleachers providing seating for demonstrations and talks.
With just 48 hours for installation, each of the eight zones was allocated two shifts of cross-disciplinary crew, providing telehandlers, electricians, project managers, joiners and scenic artists to work around the clock.
