Project: DWC Lakeside Mall, New Orleans

Project Team: Cactus, Lumiartecnia Internacional, Aquareign

Architect: Marcelo Pontes

Client: Lakeside Mall


This highly interactive Digital Water Curtain detects, with artificial vision, the approach of people and plays with them by dynamically changing the water displays following their footsteps.

The Digital Water Curtain in this project it is specially adapted to be placed indoors in a shopping environment, this means it has to work almost all day, every single day of the year, must be almost maintenance free and must have no splashing out of the designed wet areas.

This original rain fountain is placed in a main plaza where the visitors walk by during all day, so this shooting, attractive and playful waterfall engage people to stay in the area, have fun and keep going to continue their journey through the busy mall.

The Digital Water Curtain is fully integrated into the ceiling above, just the interactive flowing rain being visible for the visitors, remaining all the equipment out of sight and blended with the existing architecture.

This interactive waterfall has become an iconic element in this shopping mall, one of the most famous in New Orleans.

The high waterfall creates a smooth rain sound and a relaxing atmostphere while weaving evolving eye catching water shapes colorfully lighted with RGB LED illumination from above.
