Reimagining the Big Box

Ciara Allen

ARCH 211/Spring 2019

This project reimagines the Big Box typology as a pair of theaters with undulating floors where visitors can spread out on blankets and enjoy film in an informal, social manner. The ceiling is articulated with lights that mimic the night sky and evoke the feeling of a midnight film screening on an outdoor lawn. These theater spaces are flanked by figural pathways that weave through the plan providing access to restrooms, concessions and other back-of-house programs.
