Beijing-based architect Ole Scheeren recently completed a unique rendition of a classic American drive-in move theater situated in the Nai Pi Lae lagoon off of Thailand’s Kudu Island. Used for a recent film festival, the circular designed floating cinema was created from recycled materials. Since its initial use at the festival, the floating cinema has been given to the local community to use as a playground and floating stage. “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.” – Architect Ole Scheeren says of the project
