Pilot #1

Play or Pause Cinema

#playorpausecinema

Is it possible to innovate the ways in which we screen and view film? For Play or Pause Cinema, architecture students at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology worked on devising a mobile, modular pavilion for screening film.

The challenge of the pilot study was to combine functionality with exploratory design in the construction of a mobile pavilion. This structure would then be useful for Smart Kreativ Stad in the future pilot study Popup Cinema, which investigates innovative screening practices in cityscapes.

Location

The pavilion was constructed at the KTH Studio 9 and used for popup cinema at various venues around Stockholm.

Architecture students at KTH Studio 9 were given a diploma assignment to design a mobile pavilion for use in urban environments for popup screenings of film. The challenge was to combine  function with exploratory design. Through the filter of innovative materials and concepts, the students investigated how a mobile construction can influence the screening and viewing of film, while enriching an urban environment.

Audience

The pavilion was constructed to be used by event organizers in mobile film screenings.

The pavilion is a concrete means for making film screening mobile and lifting the cinematic experience out into urban space. It was used in the pilot study Popup Cinema and has since been in demand by organizers in the region.
