    Zürich Meets New York City at Grand Central Terminal

    Experience Switzerland up close at this weeklong cultural event

    May 16-23, 2014
    9:00 am – 8:00 pm daily

    This event is free and open to the public.

    As part of the citywide “Zürich Meets New York: A Festival of Swiss Ingenuity,” ETH Zurich invites New Yorkers to visit a virtual Zurich inside Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal. Using the latest augmented reality (AR) technologies, visitors can experience the style, culture, and excitement of Switzerland’s largest city on a “train ride” from Grand Central. Visitors can also meet and take pictures with Eva, ETH Zurich’s virtual superhero scientist, in her fully decked-out science lab, as she encourages young people to pursue the wonders of science.

    Also featured is an exhibition from award-winning photographer and environmentalist Yann Arthus-Betrand, author of the bestselling book, Earth from Above.  Presented by Switzerland Tourism and taken from Arthus-Betrand’s new film, Human, spectacular birds-eye images of Switzerland are displayed in large format in Vanderbilt Hall.
