Wuxi Studios is a working movie and television production studio that also features retail and dining venues. Their newest attraction, Planet Mech is a 4D theater anchoring a newly developed back-lot.

Based on the apocalyptic nightmare of machines turning against humans, the futuristic building features a lobby with pre-show, 3 queue corridors, 4D theater and associated retail and dining. Visions of impending doom inform the architecture and detailing throughout.

Our team was responsible for creating the story-line, the facility design, including interior environments, and technical design for the 4D theater.
