Sans Souci cinema

“This project took the form of a campaign to rebuild the Sans Souci community cinema in the Soweto township district of Kliptown following its destruction by fire in 1995. Beginning with a question rather than a design concept, architects Lindsay Bremner and 26’10 South asked: ‘What minimum resources does one need to turn a ruin into a cinema?’ By developing the idea of the cinema’s restoration through events and installations, they sought to shape an empowering memory of the Sans Souci – a spatial idea of the past that would anchor the local community’s shared vision of the future.”
