Al Jazeera Arabic news channel recently upgraded their studios for HD broadcasts. I was delighted to be asked to provide the animated newsroom backdrops for the screens behind the presenters on the night-time bulletins. Other project committment meant that I hadn’t been able to take this project on initially, but when a window opened in my schedule I seized the opportunity to work with one of the worlds biggest broadcasters. By this stage, the deadline wasn’t far off, so I set about designing and preparing these set extensions in record-breaking time.
The final design comprises a double height space backed by office and control room spaces with views through to an atrium space beyond.
Update April 12, 2013 – This project has now been added to the Lightwell website
