When the fashion show goers first enter Canopy, they will enter the first exhibition space, a forest stimulation room.

 
 

In the forest stimulation space, guests will feel that they are immersed within a real boreal forest. The forest projections will disappear over the next minutes, showing the audience how rapid deforestation can be.
