Created by yU+co in Los Angeles, CA, USA , 2019

yU+co partnered with Los Angeles’ The Music Center to transform their Plaza into a “Smart Plaza” as part of the center’s $41 million renovation. For the Music Center, it was important that the screens be more than just animated billboards, but rather connected to the public in an authentic way. yU+co installed three cameras and one 3D scanner across the Plaza in order to capture the light, motion and sound of the Plaza. The screens respond to their environment and the public in a way that changes as the conditions change, creating a new and singular experience for the visitor each time they step onto the Plaza.

yU+co designed the interactive capabilities for the LED screens to consist of five unique applications. The “Plaza Augmented” application uses the three cameras to feed live video of the Plaza into a program that uses machine learning to analyze imagery and translate that data into the artistic style of any painting. For the Music Center Plaza’s grand opening, the live video of the event was transformed into a “Living Canvas” visualizing the plaza in recognizable painterly styles of artists such as Hokusai. This artistic transfer style is a breakthrough in machine learning technology that has never been executed at a live event or at the scale of these LED screens.
