The floating cinema at Thailand's Film on the Rocks festival

German-born architect Ole Scheeren designed this auditorium raft Archipelago Cinema, for the inaugural Film on the Rocks Yao Noi festival in Thailand earlier this month. Guests were taken by boat to the floating cinema in the Nai Pi Lae lagoon on Kudu Island where they were treated to a unique viewing experience.

"Surrounded by a dramatic landscape of towering rocks emerging from the ocean, the audience experienced an atmospheric convergence of nature and cinematic narratives - primordial notions of light, sound and stories suspended in the darkness between sea and sky."

The festival, which was curated by filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul and actress Tilda Swinton, is set to become an annual meeting place for art and film.
