Pipe All can be seen as a re-imagining of the classic picture palace of the 1950’s. The motifs and formal qualities of these cinemas still remain as iconic images of the golden age of the movie theater. Yet with the evolution of the cineplex and alternative modes of entertainment, these forms have been lost in the architecture of the theater.
Pipe All attempts to reclaim these classic forms by re-purposing them to give them new life. Here, forms such as the marquee and the banner are given new functionality.
