The "Centipede Cinema" is a free standing cinema that offers a unique way of watching a movie
Pop-up cinemas are an in thing nowadays, however a professor from a London University offers people an unconventional way of watching a movie.
The “Centipede Cinema” is a mobile, pop-up cinema, conceived by Professor Colin Fournier from Bartlett School of Architecture. He seeked the help of Polish artist Marysia Lewandowska and London studio NEON, to create a free standing cinema that is made of a steel frame and a canvas and cork structure.
It features 16 nozzles, where viewers have to enter to watch a movie. They can be seen standing up, with only their legs exposed. Once inside the nozzle, they will be treated to an hour-long film movie that is composed of of 20, 3-minute trailers, chosen by local workers.
Fournier talks about his design:
“We wanted to show that cork can be used for architectural purposes. We used cork for the outer skin and a special dark cork to create the ‘black out’ effect needed for the cinema.”
The “Centipede Cinema” is currently situated in Guimarães, Portugal.View Article Source »
