Archipelago Cinema Thailand’s Floating Movie Theater

Beijing-based Scheeren fashioned his design after local fishermens' lobster rafts. The wooden frames were tied up by rubber straps to foam blocks and floated in the lagoon "almost like driftwood." He wanted to create "a sense of temporality, of randomness" where the pieces playfully joined together. The modular rafts, loosely assembled, were meant to replicate a floating archipelago of islands within the lagoon. Alas, upon the festival's conclusion, the rafts were disassembled, reconfigured, and reused by the local fishermen.
