Ryugyong

International Film Festival

Film Festival
Multiple Screens
Lasting Monument

One week student project initiated by Domus Magazine.

The task was to work with the empty structure of the Ryugyong Hotel. Since Kim Jong II's interest in film and the isolation of North Korea are both known my proposal was an international film festival that by the simplest possible means change the meaning of the giant structure.

  • Board up windows to form one large rectangle on each facade. Wash the facade and the boards with white paint.
  • Project films on the white surfaces.
  • A large white rectangle on each facade of the tower remain, transforming the meaning of the monument
