Temporary cinema in Lalibela, Ethiopia

Project Details


Jflemay Architecture and Design

Lowe Works, Alexander House , 14 Peterborough Road , LONDON , SW6 3BN

The twelve students of the Architectural Association Diploma 7 flew from London to Lalibela, Ethiopia to help fulfil the town’s dream to have a cinema. During five nights, our collapsible glowing screen drew hundreds of villagers and helped us develop thesis projects suited to the needs of this community.
