The building connects the parks on its two sides through a loop which accommodates the public functions of the film archive. The soft folded skin of the loop stretches towards the park and turns into a movie screen and leads people into the building. The back of the building is composed of fragmented, folded units that house the private programs of the archive. The objective of the project is to explore how the two distinct types of folding can create different spatial qualities.
