Make Architects designed a unique cinema space for this year’s Regeneration Film Festival in London - and it’s made entirely from reclaimed cardboard! The shell-shaped structure is comprised of over 1,200 pieces of hexagonal shapes stacked and tied together, and it's furnished with stools also made from reclaimed materials that will be donated to a local college after the event.
The Regeneration Film Festival, an open-entry short film festival dedicated to the theme of sustainable regeneration and construction, will be held during the annual Ecobuild exhibition in London. This year Make Architects took on the challenge of designing a venue where films will be showcased. Their igloo-shaped structure made from reclaimed cardboard pieces will shelter seating arrangements that will be donated after the festival.
According to Peter Greaves, partner at Make Architects, the structure will be easily assembled and deconstructed. Its curved geometry, combined with creative use of recycled materials, will not only convey the idea of the event, but also complete the atmosphere of Ecobuild 2014 and the festival’s intended sustainability message.
