2ND PRIZE - SYMBIOTIC VENUE BY NADA ALQALLAF & JAIME SEVILLA

JURY'S COMMENTS: Incorporating a film school into the cinema allows the proposal to grow beyond being 'a cinema and a school that happens to share the same building'. This is strengthened by the architectural composition, which works very well with the idea: the concept of looking back towards the English theatre creates a design that allows audience and students to effortlessly enter a symbiotic relationship, enriching the experience of both parties. Using the interstitial space as another theatrical vehicle allows everyday uses, such as circulation within the building, to become another opportunity for spectator viewing.
