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.
The pavilion was used in the pilot Popup Cinema. It is still available for hire at cost for event organizers in Stockholm.
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.
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.

The aim of the Smart Kreativ Stad project was to investigate the ways in which film and moving images might contribute to enlivening a cityscape. The project was managed by Film Capital Stockholm in 2015–2020 in collaboration with members and partners in a broad range of sectors in the Stockholm Region. The project was co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
