Water Rain Curtain
Shopping Mall – Suzhou
Guinness World Record: The world's tallest water rain curtain (strings)
Innovative project implementation
Spectacular indoor installation becomes a visitor attraction
„Water shall fall from the sky“
This is how Mr Chen, managing director of the Xinhu Mingzhu shopping centre in Suzhou, China, eloquently expressed his wonderful and passionate vision for the entrance area. The idea was a challenging one: An installation that would see water rain down from the dome of the entrance hall from a height of 26.02 metres into a pool on the ground floor with a useable diameter of just 6 metres.
A sensational success
The water curtain is now the Xinhu Mingzhu shopping centre's main attraction, bringing visitors and Internet fame alike. It creates a special visual and auditory atmosphere and never ceases to fascinate and amaze onlookers with its illusion of water falling freely to the ground. Sometimes the installation attracts such a large number of visitors that the crowds have to be kept under control.
