Wuhan Insun International Cineplex

Wuhan Insun International Cineplex


The designers adopted traditional film editing as the theme. A lot of metal mesh lightboxes are hung throughout the cinema. As light penetrates four different shapes and sizes of holes on the metal mesh, the interplay between light and shadow enriches the lighting effect in the lobby. Some lightboxes are painted with single Chinese characters to indicate different areas and represent images on roll films. The nostalgic lighting signifies the passage of time and imitates lighting in the past.

Statement of the jury

With its characteristic lightboxes, this intriguing design evokes an era when movies were still shot on celluloid.
