THE INTERNATIONAL CENTER PROJECT – PROJET DE CENTRE INTERNATIONAL

We have designed a totally innovative, cutting-edge international center – the HUMANEUS Center – with two rules as the basis for this project:

  • The first is to make humans our focus of inspiration.
  • The second is to interact with the international public in a completely new way.

Imagine the HUMANEUS Center, a crossroads for human knowledge to link the great cultural centers of the world as did the ancient trade routes of the past.

Inspired by fundamental questions concerning the origin and future of Humans, the HUMANEUS Center is a vast cultural and scientific complex dedicated to the arts and to innovation. This ensemble has links to the fields of business and education, to a Motion Capture studio, to a multi-purpose and futuristic theater, to a mythology initiation space for children that transports them to the sources of knowledge, of themselves and of life. But the HUMANEUS Center also comprises an interdisciplinary school, laboratories for human sciences, advanced technology and artificial intelligence, a production studio, a start-up park and three entirely virtual and modular museums. This ensemble forms the LEIBNIZ Institute, a unique international hub of research and study into humans collaborating with the Cross-Reality Zone, a vast experimental environment showcasing numerous absolutely state-of-the-art attractions.

Imagine a completely vibrant, evolving and multifaceted space inviting the international public to embark on the most breathtaking adventure of discovery: the Human Adventure.

THE HUMANEUS CENTER – KNOWLEDGE AT THE HEART OF ENTERTAINMENT

It is a very ambitious project, that of an innovative, multidisciplinary, evolutionary and multifaceted environment for teaching, research and entertainment.
The HUMANEUS Center highlights and analyses what is defined as Architecture of the Human or Inner Adventure, namely the phenomenal energy that has animated humanity since its origins, forcing it to constantly push back its limits and pushing it further and further towards a fascinating metamorphosis.

The HUMANEUS Center is an experimental park, an adventure and immersion course, a vast campus built on a space of one and a half hectares, on five aerial and underground levels, which can be used independently of the day, the time, the climate or the seasons.

The HUMANEUS Center fuses immersive technologies with cinematic-quality scenography that takes the visitor on a journey to the roots of mythology and the human experience.

THE OPERATIONAL SYSTEM OF THE HUMANEUS CENTER

The HUMANEUS Center complex is made of two mains areas: THE LEIBNIZ INSTITUTE and THE CROSS-REALITY ZONE, they form the two mains frameworks constituting the HUMANEUS Center.
The interaction between the LEIBNIZ Institute and the Cross-Reality Zone is the driving force behind the HUMANEUS Center.

The HUMANEUS Center is a showcase for science and research which aims to work closely with high-tech companies and international institutions, but also with museums, schools and universities around the world.

The HUMANEUS Center generates the production of multimedia content, such as feature films, documentaries, television content and series for adults and children, video games and derivative products that complement the discourse delivered by the Center.

Conceived by the students, researchers, artists, creators and programmers developing the various environments composing the HUMANEUS Center – in collaboration with the Government of the host country and our international partners – these technological, artistic and entertainment products created and developed by and for the HUMANEUS Center are offered to the local and international market.

The HUMANEUS Center has a digital duplicate fully designed in its own image that is active on the Cloud. The physical Center and its digital brother interact in the service of the general public. This mode of operation is called the Twin Centers system and is described in the chapter entitled: The Twin Centers.

Knowledge at the heart of entertainment

One learns knowledge best when one is entertained, moved and passionate – this is one of the main ideas behind how the HUMANEUS Center operates.
This is why the HUMANEUS Center – through its Cross-Reality Zone and the experimental frameworks it offers – is an entirely rigged environment, designed to allow the general public to enter a succession of trials and adventurous journeys, so that they can integrate in a more profound way the knowledge that the Center delivers, to live it physically as well as psychologically, to experience it while having fun.
This International Center is a unique place where education, science, research, art and entertainment mix, stimulate and coexist like nowhere else.


INNOVATIVE PEDAGOGY – INTEGRATING THE AUDIENCE SO THAT THEY BECOME AN ACTIVE AND THINKING PART OF THE GREAT SHOW THAT IS PRESENTED TO THEM

A journey in three stages

The HUMANEUS Center invites the audience to discover and experience the knowledge it presents by following a three-step process: initiation, teaching and experimentation.
Initiation and teaching delivered by the HUMANEUS Center can be discovered within the LEIBNIZ Institute, while experimentation is lived in the heart of the Cross-Reality Zone by discovering the different experimental frameworks offered by the zone to the general public.

To promote understanding, this journey – made in collaboration with the Museum Space of the HUMANEUS Center – examines three periods:

  • Past

  • Present

  • Future

INTERACTING WITH THE INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC IN A COMPLETELY NEW WAY

Nowadays, in museums, in exhibitions or in any other type of performance or show, the public always finds itself in the role of an observer, a witness to the action taking place before its eyes.
But if the audience is immersed in a life-size universe (physical and digital) in such a way that they live and experience a concept with their own bodies, they will integrate it much more easily than if they remain a mere spectator.

Today, with technological advances, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, holography, mechanical engineering, stage illusion, life-size sets and the use of actors, this adventure is possible as never before.

Mythology

The material delivered by the HUMANEUS Center – what we call: Architecture of the Human or Inner Adventure – is a journey common to all humanity. This odyssey is a dazzling epic that must be rediscovered and shared. In order to introduce it to the international public, the HUMANEUS Center had to find a universal language – it chose the language of mythology.

Mythology is a symbolic journey that finds its roots in the depths of time and is already heading powerfully towards a dizzying future.

In this age of extraordinary tension and change, in which the exchange of information has never been so rapid and powerful, nations are perceived more for the territory they occupy, for their social, economic and political model, the level of their power, than for their rich history and culture and for what they can bring to the world through their deep and unique identities.

One of the mandates of the LEIBNIZ Institute is to create a bridge between cultures using the language of mythology.

As we race headlong towards globalisation and face the titanic challenges of the future, it is vital for nations to remember what they are and to present to the world, beyond appearances, what has always forged them and made each of them an absolutely indispensable treasure, a precious foundation without which no viable future can be truly envisaged or built.
To do this, we must return to the ancient, immemorial ages, to the sources of the perception of the world, when myths, fables, tales and legends were disseminated along the great trade routes, like so many portraits and identities of the peoples who conveyed and shared them.
Through its universal message, mythology allows us to make this prodigious return to the origins, while keeping a resolutely modern vision turned towards a future that already presents itself on our horizon.

The HUMANEUS Center is a temple dedicated to the discovery of the Human, it is a setting where yesterday’s knowledge meets today’s knowledge and dreams of tomorrow’s great achievements. It is a complex that uses physical and spiritual adventure as a means of initiation; it has a unique way of getting the general public immersed in the very heart of the teaching delivered, it makes it an active player, an actor with the ability to act and influence the environment that is offered to him/her.
