Where are cinemas going? Are they an evening out, a festive occasion, something of a 'luxury' when compared to the parallel availability of television? Are we looking at fewer cinemas, with more advanced technical standards, itself again a reflection of urban reorganization? Are cinemas changing to a means of education like the IMAX that shows a variety of documentary films? Or are cinemas going to fade out to make place for the comfort and ease of the cinema in your own living room?

The goal of the project is to design a cinema centre that is original and offers the user a new and exciting experience. The cinema is based on the film and information technology industry especially new and future technological trends. The main focus, however, is the user's experience through the space and how it can be enhanced through the use of technology. The aim is to create a sense of voyeurism, which exemplifies the user's experience in the cinema auditorium and in the rest of the building by creating passing glipmses, which combine activity and object. The cinema centre will provide a space of invention, innovation and experience.
