FUTURE DESIGN: Double Horizon Cinema
Recalling the bohemian cinemas of the 1920s, Cinema 2010 combines Kubrick’s futuristic vision with a rich décor, allowing the cinema to again become our departure gate for the synthetic dream worlds of film. With cutting edge technology and deluxe comfort, it creates a new mélange of bar, restaurant and theater. Guests ascend the stair into a beautifully lit sea of bed lounges where they can enjoy a gourmet dinner and wine. As dinner concludes, lights dim and blinds obscure the panoramic skyline view and guests recline gently to watch the film projected overhead. When the visitor sits or stands, his view is directed horizontally; yet lying horizontally to watch the film above, he activates a second view horizon—the double horizon.
Conceived as a transportable structure, the cinema’s core services are located in a modular podium. The spectacular roof and auditorium are made of a dual-layer pneumatic skin reinforced with light steel structure. Hosting film premieres and special screenings, the cinema can be erected quickly by crane on urban rooftops or tranquil natural settings.
