Bertelsmann - Planet m

To begin your journey into the world of media, you had to take a seat in a huge lift (the Space Lift) mounted on jacks that took you 9 metres above the ground into the projection dome.

In the dome, a show recounted the history of the media and its impact from the beginning of human history to the present day.

Then the show disappeared to make way for a short film on the story of a young Berber who goes in search of the origins of the world.

The visit of the pavilion continued on foot, so by passing the bridge one found oneself in the "media gallery" where all the Bertelsmann media were presented (magazines, newspapers...) in the form of 137 stagings.

Finally the visit ended in the media shop where 50 multimedia and internet terminals were present.
