London-based architect Asif Khan creates a 2000 sq.m pavilion and landscape for MegaFon, one of the largest Russian telecoms companies and general partner of the Sochi Winter Olympics 2014.
3D photo booths within the pavilion and across Russia in MegaFon retail stores will scan visitors’ portraits to be recreated in by the pavilion. It’s facade is designed to function like a huge pin screen. It is made up of over 10,000 actuators which transform the building’s skin into a three-dimensional portrait of each visitor’s face.
The concept is to give everyone the opportunity to be the face of the Olympics.
