# Architectural Mapping
Chambord was the initiator of the first sound and light show in the world in 1952.
In 2022, Chambord revived this tradition and welcomed thousands of spectators for a new sound and light show also mixing pyrotechnic effects and … video mapping.
A great fresco combining the history and legends of one of the most majestic French castle and going back to the origins of the castle, its multi-century forest, its fauna and flora. It is an ode to the 4 elements, earth, water, air and fire.
Masters & Events Factory, with the support of the Domaine National de Chambord, creator and organizer of the event, called upon Drop The Spoon to take up the challenge of creating a 60-minute content, evocative and respectful of the building with its 500 years of history.
A challenge that the Drop The Spoon team, called late on the project, had to realize in less than a month.

Our Main & 1st Challenge :
Projecting images as respectfully as possible on such a majestic building full of history.
Our 2nd Challenge :
Create 60 minutes of content in less than a month on a building that we have entirely recreated in 3D.
Our 3rd Challenge :
Several areas of the castle were covered with scaffolding.
To accept, to make forget and to integrate a parameter, initially frustrating and disturbing, with the history and the images, we created content that sometime emphasize, sometime hides those scaffolding.
Attributed to Leonardo da Vinci, the Chambord staircase has a unique feature at the time:
two screws, which rise one above the other and which seem to form only one.
