Archipelago Cinema – Nai Pi Lae Lagoon, Thailand
The site of the first annual Film on the Rocks: Yao Noi Festival, curated by Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Tilda Swinton, the cinema is an auditorium raft designed to float on the sea. Architect Ole Scheeren explains, “the thought of watching films here seemed surprising. A screen, nestled somewhere between the rocks. And the audience… floating… hovering above the sea, somewhere in the middle of this incredible space of the lagoon, focused on the moving images across the water: A sense of temporality, randomness, almost like driftwood.”
