GH Tsingyi Cinema

PrizeHonorable Mention
Entry Description

GH Tsing Yi Cinema in Hong Kong is a renovated project located in the Maritime Square shopping mall with connection to the Mass Transit Railway. The new style of the cinema follows an ocean theme. Normally, seeing movies is always an activity trying to escape from one’s daily routine pattern/activities. Sparkling from this idea, the design targets through the artistic manifestation, turning GH cinema into a spatial sensation of being beyond daily life experience. The usual signifiers such as marine objects are not the design subject matter, but the marine theme concept is reflected in different spatial interface through a vague and abstract experience. It is the visualization about the experience of swimming in the sea. The regular rhythm of water is formed by repetition and variation to create a diverse natural form of continuity. The feeling of sound and light differ when people are immersed in water from the air would like to condense.
