The Alésia multi-screen cinema is on the edge of a large urban space. The building now comprises eight screens and occupies a fairly deep site, with a second facade on the side street, Rue d’Alésia.
Architects: One Plus Partnership Limited. A meteor is an astronomical observation where a bright trail of light appears in the night sky when a meteoroid enters the Earth’s atmosphere. This beautiful scene only appears in the sky for a very brief moment, and then vanishes without leaving any trace behind.
Design: Vazio S/A architects. Considered for a time Brazil’s largest cinema, Cine Theatro Brasil was built in 1932 at an important intersection in downtown Belo Horizonte. Structural Archeology sought to activate this now unused space, coating the roof framework with a translucent screen, and turning the bleak void into an active venue.
Design: The Purple Ink Studio. The structure is situated at a major city junction in a dense urban fabric. Design brief: A contemporary face-lift to an old structure so as to regenerate the landmark. The project was to be planned for quick and easy construction to enable running of all three screens for the forthcoming movie releases.
