Competition proposal Globo Celáqueo. Barcelona World Race, Barcelona

The icon and trophy for the “Barcelona World Race” is a "celaquéo" globe (term composed of “Celestin” –stars and “Aqua”- water on the globe’s surface) , an object that delineates and represents most data and information indispensable for the navigation around the world . This large three-dimensional map acts as symbol and physical boat-race-reference in the harbour whilst the ships compete in distant seas. It’s doubles as physical support for the electronic information which retransmits the itinerary of the race. Luminous indicators on the surface of the globe mark the position of each ship in real time whilst a touch screen allows the onlooker to contact and to communicate with any of the crew members of the Barcelona World Race.
