First, the requiem. Now we celebrate the awe and wonder of the attraction that broke the mold for predictive storytelling. Horizons joins its fellow pavilions with its own edition of light-beamed splendor. This time the building is illustrated in a signature white hot glow with a dramatic sunrise beginning its ascent in the distance.

Designer’s Note: Since “The Land” release I’ve been very concerned with the depiction of the pavilion symbols. Most are (will be) easily distinguishable in half form, and some less-than-logical reflections help with clear representation. BUT when it came time to work on Horizons, these methods simply would not be as effective. Fortunately, the iconic “horizon-al” structure of the pavilion’s logo was perfect for extrapolation.
