LA ProPoint Designs and Installs Key Elements for One World Trade Center Guest Experience

See Forever Theater

LA ProPoint, a provider of design, engineering, fabrication, and installation of stage and show systems, has designed, fabricated, and installed two critical guest experience features of the new One World Trade Center in New York.

The first element, which was created in collaboration with the Hettema Group, involves eight moving panels in the See Forever Theater. A media presentation is projected onto the panels, which retract in a cascading sequence into the ceiling, revealing the actual view of Manhattan from the 102nd floor of OWTC. When not retracted, each panel is approximately 10' wide and 14' tall, completely obscuring the theatre's windows. The panels interlock side by side, giving the appearance of a single skyline running the length of the room (about 80').

The See Forever Theater presents a two-minute video presentation that combines bird's eye imagery and time-lapse shots with abstract textures and patterns to present the unique rhythm and pulse of New York City. More information can be found at oneworldobservatory.com/experience.

The second installation, also created in collaboration with the Hettema Group, features two Sky Portal camera mounts, which are permanently attached at the 106th floor level, on opposite sides of the building. The camera mount structures, which feature stainless steel and high-grade exterior epoxy coating, are engineered to withstand extreme temperature changes, inclement weather, and high winds.

"We are excited and proud to be a part of One World Trade Center," notes Mark Riddlesperger, founder and president of LA ProPoint. "This iconic building will become a part of US culture, and our panels and camera mounts will be important aspects of the visitor experience. We are grateful to be associated with such a breathtaking and historic structure."
