ORBI CASE STUDIES

"For the first development of its kind outside of Japan and the first to use gypsum partitions for its auditoria"

"An attraction place like no other consists of twelve different nature zones designed to create experiences that would be impossible in the real world."

"The centerpiece of the attraction is the Earth Theatre, a 35-metre-wide screen with a powerful 3D sound system where the natural world comes to life through state of the art technologies including fog, vibratory sensations and fragrances."

"USG Boral innovative systems and products were able to provide a curved drywall partition to a radius of less than 4 meters using high density plasterboard achieving high acoustic performance’s required. 14 meter high lightweight curved walls plus free standing auditoria with high acoustic requirements were also installed. With USG Boral’s building materials products you can achieve the most projects complex mechanics, acoustics and fire requirements."
