art arena - roland museum
london, 2001-2005 - first prize
designed to house a unique collection of films about art , this museum encompasses 42 projection theaters playing films simultaneously. the layout of the art arena is designed in relation to time zones controlled by the schedule of film projection. the visitor experiences the synchronization with sequence of the architectural spaces with the sequence of the time-based artworks. the seats grouped in clusters have been conceived as an interior topography, based on time sections generated from the same process. new audio set technology and video projection systems have been utilized to free the museum spaces from the conventional acoustical limitation of a projection room and to remove the spatial enclosure of the traditional film theater.
