In October 2015, filming for the LUTHER 1517 panorama took place over several days, featuring a host of extras. Yadegar Asisi insisted on the use of costumes and props from the Reformation era, as well as original locations.
The panorama installation ‘DRESDEN 1945 – Tragedy and hope of a European city’ was singled out by the German Design Council in its 2016 German Design Awards. It received a ‘Special Mention’ in the ‘Fairs and Exhibitions’ category.
Yadegar Asisi’s panoramas have been on display in Rouen, France since 20 December 2014. This is the first time his panoramas have appeared outside Germany. ’Panorama XXL’, an exhibition rotunda built specifically to house Asisi’s work, opened on the banks of the Seine. The project took shape as a result of a partnership between Métropole Rouen Normandie, Region Haute Normandie and La Matmut. Several of Yadegar Asisi’s panoramas have appeared at the ‘Panorama XXL’ since. So far, the ROME 312, AMAZONIA, ROUEN 1431 and GREAT BARRIER REEF panoramas have been exhibited.
On 6 December 2014, an exhibition space displaying the ROME 312 panorama opened in the historic Gasometer Pforzheim. The listed industrial building, which dates back to 1912, has been carefully renovated and converted into a space for panorama exhibitions. This marks the first location in Baden-Württemberg and in southern Germany as a whole.
The format of ‘PERGAMON – Panorama of the ancient metropolis’ by Yadegar Asisi and his team was recognised at the 2014 German Design Awards, earning a ‘Special Mention’ with the quality of its design.
The format of the panorama project ‘LEIPZIG 1813 – Amidst the confusion of the Battle of the Nations’ by Yadegar Asisi was named ‘Best of the Best’ at the 2014 Red Dot Design Awards in the ‘Communication Design’ category.
The 360° panorama ‘LEIPZIG 1813 – Amidst the confusion of the Battle of the Nations’ by Yadegar Asisi was the 2014 winner of the German Design Council’s Iconic Award in the ‘Architecture, Event/Exhibition’ category.
14 October 2012 saw the first exhibition of the PERGAMON 360° panorama by Yadegar Asisi draw to a close. The exhibition had been held in a temporary rotunda in the Pergamon Museum’s courtyard. The archaeological exhibition, which received a Red Dot Award and an ADC Award for its design, had closed two weeks previously. The panorama alone drew a total of 900,000 curious visitors, while 1.5 million visited the archaeological exhibition. The number of visitors to the panorama and the number of visitors to the exhibition as a whole set visitor records for both Yadegar Asisi and the classical museum.
