Writing on the facade … to use old containers for a new life


The Solution

The project is a contemporary theater in Xiamen city, Fujian province, China. The theatre will be for modern performances accompanied by a light show and various illusions. The building itself will be constructed from old metal containers. The containers will be arranged in rhythmic order and in this way we will achieve a complex shape of the project. The main idea is that the metal boxes would serve as the façade of the building and will surround the main hall of the theatre located in the center of the project. The opening of each container will light up at night. The light that will be projected will be different in each container. In this way they will form various pixels with different colors of the light and thus may appear different words on the facade.
