NTEC is an exceptional space that combines the categories of an entrepreneurial hub and a visitor center, with the figure and work of Nikola Tesla as the central theme. The visitor center’s exhibition consists of 8 sections that guide visitors through Tesla's life. The initial theme immerses visitors in his humanistic reflections through a simulation of the starry sky in an indoor space. Visitors are then directed to an interactive multimedia zone that showcases the parallel between Tesla's early observations in nature and his most famous discoveries, as well as his life in European cities before moving to New York.
The multimedia zone is the most sensorially intense and interactive (involving touch, movement, sight, and hearing), reflecting the turbulence and dynamics of Tesla's youthful phase.
The second floor presents the story in a calmer atmosphere, allowing visitors to concentrate on specific points at their own pace and interest. All projection surfaces (video walls, monitors and projectors) have a dual function. They can be switched from interpretive content to custom content according to the operator's needs. The entire facility is networked through a simple tablet interface. The idea was to provide the client, in addition to renting the building, with the ability to use the entire space for presenting their audiovisual content. The multimedia hall is equipped with a simultaneous translation system and induction loop for individuals with hearing impairments.
