MATT Construction’s team built an enormous curved theater space for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. One of the most critical and exciting elements of construction was the use of augmented reality (AR). The museum’s new extension takes the shape of an enormous glass and concrete sphere, complete with a 1,000-seat, state-of-the-art theater that features a curved interior. In order to get accurate measurements to build the theater space inside, the framing contractor opted to use specialized AR glasses designed by Trimble.
