BAITAcinema

BAITAcinema

The BAITAcinema is an ephemeral activation of a small courtyard located in the Baitasi historical district in Beijing during the whole Beijing Design Week and the French -Chinese sustainability month.

This semi-outdoor amphitheater is inserted within the existing layout of the courtyard to create accidental encounters, new spaces, new usages, and open up new potentials towards what the space could become. The contemporary architectural installation taking over the spaces of its host was designed as an open cultural platform, a flexible artifact where specific and exceptional conditions are created, an infrastructure that enables and celebrates gatherings and collective actions. The installation plays on and investigates the ambiguity of creating a space that is traditionally associated with public life, community space, and civic gathering, within a setting that epitomizes domesticity and the intimacy of family life. The amphitheater is in this sense simultaneously a symbolic event in itself and a machine capable of producing events. The ambition of the pop-up BAITAcinema is precisely to create moments of encounter and shared pleasure where the hutongs community and the visitors can attend and participate in a variety of discussion on the city, performances and cultural events, creative workshops, as well as watch documentaries, and multimedia works. During the whole design week, the evening in the BAITAcinema will be special moments where people can gather and watch together a curated series of movies focusing on the city, the environment and what it means to live together.
