XIAN BONA CINEMA
The project is located in Xian, which was the capital of several Chinese dynasties. The designers associate the design theme with traditional Chinese architecture. In ancient times, craftsmen mastered characteristics of wood structure to create the smooth outlines of roofs. They have also referred to the famous Chinese painter Wu Guanzhong’s ink painting for the project. Wu painted various aspects of Chinese architecture in a style reminiscent of the impressionist painters of the early 1900s.
Statement of the jury
The design makes reference to traditional Chinese architecture. The installation, consisting of round, red wooden posts, is artfully integrated into the space, lending the premises of the cinema a mysterious atmosphere.
