Neutral Digital released a new milestone in architecture representation – the Museo Maya suite of apps. The museum is designed by Harry Gugger Studio in conjunction with over,under. Spearheading development of the interactive architecture genre, Neutral Digital expanded on their convergent app platform with the launch of a full virtual reality solution.
At the forefront of 3D developments, Neutral Digital expands the genre into virtual perception realms.
Optimised to run on desktop and mobile platforms, the Museo Maya solution is a digital museum guide and research tool. The apps allow users to not only experience the architecture of the museum, but also explore the preeminent collection of Mayan artefacts in 3D, with options to view in-depth catalogue information and 3D print.
A groundbreaking cloud based streaming technology allows users on mobile phones, tablets or PCs to fully experience the museum, without the need of additional apps or expensive high-end devices.
This novel streaming solution allows museums to mass-deploy digital experiences and stay connected to their global audiences. Museums can continue to attract digital visitors with Neutral’s advanced 3D solutions: exhibition spaces, artworks, merchandise and education programmes remain accessible even throughout closures.
The new Museo Maya de América is among the most ambitious cultural projects under development in Central America. Designed by Harry Gugger Studio in collaboration with over,under, it is planned to house one of the world’s most significant collections of objects, artefacts, artworks, textiles and knowledge relating to the history and culture of the Mayan Civilisation.
Located on the northern edge of La Aurora Park in Guatemala City, the new museum building will form the culmination of a cultural axis that includes the Guatemalan Museum of Contemporary Art and the Children’s Museum. This dense cluster of cultural institutions, in tandem with the vast open spaces of the adjacent park, will become a focal point for tourists and residents alike.
