Pilot #1

Play or Pause Cinema


During the spring and summer of 2016, architecture students at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology worked on devising a mobile, modular space for showing film. The challenge was to combine function with exploratory design. Is it possible to innovate the ways in which we screen and view film?

The Play or Pause Cinema is a mobile pavilion which allows people to experience film in new ways. The pavilion can be disassembled into modules for easy transport.

The cinema can be adapted to various types of events and visitor capacity, with space for film, debate and seminars. The possibilities are endless.
