Project of multiplex cinema, and cinema school at the Balmes street with Castanyer street.
The Balmes Street in Barcelona is a major street that leads an important amount of traffic from north to south of the city. The project is developed around this context; It would become a showcase that displays the content in a very notorious way taking advantage of people flow. To achieve this goal, six cinema screens are condensed into a volume that lifted up as a giant screen where every film would be on exhibit through led posters as if they were their own projection-machine.
This main facade of eight floors, just like other buildings on the street, would be located in Balmes street and would aim to be a strong attraction point especially at night. The façade at the Castanyer Street which is much more domestic, would belong to the cinema school and it would be lower.
Apart from the programmatic location, is not any less important, ordering the different paths, according to the activities, whether entering or leaving the cinema, or going to the cinema school. In this regard it should be noted that the entrance and the exit to the auditoriums would never cross allowing a continuous flow, especially when the amount of the visitors raises to a maximum in the beginning of each session. The circulation could start from the street and it could go up to the roof of the theaters and come down to the street, following a double helicoidal movement.
