Archipelago Cinema: The World's First Cinema on Water

Watching movies in a theater - common.

Watching movies inside a car - classic.

Watching movies on water - Say what???!!!

Archipelago Cinema: The World's First Cinema on Water

The genius behind this amazing concept is a German architect who is based in Beijing named Ole Scheeren together with the Film on the Rocks Yao Noi Foundation which is presided by Nat Sarasas, Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Chomwan Weeraworawit.

Location: Nai Pi Lae lagoon, Kudu Island, Thailand

In his website, Scheeren described the project as:
"A screen, nestled somewhere between the rocks. And the audience… floating. Hovering above the sea, somewhere in the middle of this incredible space of the lagoon, focused on the moving images across the water. A landscape of pieces playfully joined together. A sense of temporality, randomness. Almost like drift wood. Or maybe something more architectural. Modular pieces, loosely assembled, like a group of little islands. A congregation of rafts as an auditorium. Archipelago Cinema."
