Architecture as Stage
Theaters used to an important civic space, and nowadays urban spaces have begun to be viewed as theatrical spaces. Theaters as well as cinemas are primarily shared spaces. As online viewing of films has become more prevalent, it is pertinent to explore how a shared experience can be enhanced. An outdoor theater where neighbors could gain access by foot, an atrium where preview viewing, discussion and gallery viewing could happen concurrently, are a few examples of what this multiplex offers. The multiplex is located at Van Ness Metro Station facing Connecticut Ave in Washington D.C. The Multiplex comprises eleven movie theaters with seating capacity ranging from 35 to 150, an outdoor theater, a restaurant and several roof terraces.
