To celebrate the 130th anniversary of both the National Geographic Society and the first issue of National Geographic magazine, a visual and interactive exhibition titled National Geographic: A New Age of Exploration has been launched at the Exhibition Hall of Hengqin Grand MixC, taking visitors back in time to encounter some of the most iconic and fascinating moments captured by National Geographic.
Being the official magazine of the National Geographic Society, National Geographic is renowned as one of the world’s top purveyors of quality photojournalism.
Visitors to the exhibition will be able to see over 100 classic images across five themes: history, adventure, wildlife, culture and photography. They can also walk along an amazing wall showcasing National Geographic magazine covers from as far back as 1888 and experience a discovery journey through a virtual world created by cutting-edge VR technology.
There is an interactive video installation which simulates a 3,200-year-old California Redwood called “President”. Visitors can “climb” the tree by pointing to different parts to take a closer look at a mosaic, which is made of 126 photographs, to understand a bit more about the tree’s history.
Hengqin Grand MixC is an RMB50 billion (US$7.9 billion) mixed-use new city center with floorage of more than two million square meters. Located in the prime area of Hengqin, the large scale mixed use development comprises retail, food and beverage, office space, a hotel and cultural facilities.
