THE SCIENCE OF CREATIVITY
VIRGINIA TECH'S CASSELL COLISEUM
To execute a TEDx event at Virginia Tech in Cassell Coliseum, to showcase the Innovations in Engineering, Arts, and Humanities from the university. This event would be a formal gala for 320(Approximate) audience members, and include a full 3-course meal
The inspiration for this design is to create a unified visual atmosphere through the cohesive blend of the signature TEDx aesthetic and the Iconic locations of Virginia Tech.
The main stage is designated for the larger keynote addresses. On stage there are 6 red towers to reflect the iconic War Memorial Chapel (Photo 2.1-2.2) on the Virginia Tech campus. Center stage should have a circular red carpet keeping it line with TED TALK aesthetic. The rest of the deck is to be gloss black. Upstage there is a large LED video screen that will be used by the presenters.
The Thrust stage is designated for shorter presentations as well as a location for the moderator of the event to speak from. The Trust is curved out of the stage right side of the main stage and has a circular platform at the end with stairs that surround the circumference of the deck. This stage is to also have a red carpet similar to that of the main stage.
