    The design of the two envelopes and of the roof is looking to get away from a classic formal vocabulary of architecture, in order to approach the image of a landform. This design provides the building with a certain individuality and monumentality in the urban landscape, as it becomes both a visual signal and a representative element for the town.

    The project title reminds of the film Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, directed by Giuseppe Tornatore in 1988. This film tells the story of the childhood of a film director, which takes place during the 50s, in Sicily. Alongside with the story of the director, the film follows the evolution of the movie history by an allegory with the villages cinema, called Cinema Paradiso and its projectionist, Alfredo.

    Beaucaire, Languedoc-Roussillon, France.

    The site chosen for this project is located near the city center of Beaucaire, next to the canal and the old telegraph building. This location is privileged, thanks to its direct relationship with the city center, the canal and the Road of Romans (Rue de Marronniers). Furthermore, from the point of view of boat circulation, the canal offers good perspectives to the site, which can be regarded as the entrance in the city.

    Hitchcock, Albert

    The main challenge of the project was to create a hybrid between the cultural dimension of the equipment (art cinema, movie association, exhibition space) and the entertainment dimension (commercial cinemas, bistros).

    The function of the cinema is complemented by a coffee shop of about 80 seats, an exhibition space and an underground parking.

  • 9The cinematographic experience should be a well-controlled interchange between a deeply social experience, which occurs before and after the film and the solitude in which the viewer is immersed during the film. By his period of loneliness, the viewer plunges into a new world, the world of each film. All through this trip, he loses track of time and finally he finds himself confused or lost at the exit of the theatre. Sometimes, we happen to be surprised when we leave the theater and we realize that it is already dark outside.

    The image of the facade, covered with colored pixels, is a reminder to the world of cinema and to the virtual dimension of this type of equipment. In addition, the design of ramp railing follows the pattern of pixels present on the facade.

    I also invite you to watch a video presentation of the spectators walk from the public space to the outdoor theater, located on the roof:

    During the day, the facade will act as a filter for the outside light and will project colors on the buildings central core due to the sunlight.

    During the night, the building becomes a sort of colored lamp, which will make the activities and the interior of the building visible from the outside.

    At the level of the global strategy for the town of Beaucaire, this image marks the entry into the town, by the boat canal.

    Second year of Master project - team with Yann ZIELINSKI, at ENSA Clermont-Ferrand

    The initial idea of this project was based on the observation of the bipolarity logic of the town of Beaucaire. We imagined a progressive development, which involves in the first place the increase of the influence of these two poles. Subsequently we sought to strengthen the connections between the two poles, and finally we set up a territorial complementarity with the town of Tarascon, located on the other side of the Rhone.
