Birkbeck College, Film Studies

A dynamic and exciting new cinema and associated spaces were designed to foster and support research projects in screen media. The design is an architecture of colliding planes, some of which penetrate the existing building envelope to provide light at oblique and expressive angles. The dramatic spaces are made possible by sensitive and ingenious intervention in the existing extension structure. Load paths are traced down through the new structure onto the old foundations.
