The project, which is being managed by the Brazil office, will be similar to the Cisco House unveiled at the 2012 London Olympics. It featured state-of-the-art meeting rooms leveraging Cisco technology, interactive exhibits telling the Cisco business story via 3D and 360° theatres and networking lounges that transformed into a formal gala dining area.

Earlier this month, GPJ’s US office built the ‘IBM Cognitive Studio’ for SXSW Interactive 2016 in Austin, Texas, creating an immersive IBM experience with a showcase of apps, games and VR cycling.
