Lights of Liberty - Philadelphia, PA
The Liberty 360 show in the PECO Theater was Philadelphia’s first high definition, 3D, 360° attraction that showed the history of the City of Philadelphia. The theater opened in the fall of 2010 and consisted of a three ft high platform, in a 50 ft diameter space, enclosed by an 8 ft high screen, having the capacity to entertain up to 60 guests at a time. Wick Fisher White provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection and structural design services to support the design team’s vision of this high tech tourist attraction. In addition to the theater itself, the design included retail space, box office and information desks, restrooms, and an audiovisual area housing critical 24/7 computer equipment. WFW also provided aid to the contractor in the design of several major design build elements including the design of the screen/drum enclosure and the structural support of the main AV equipment ring above the theater.
