Iceland has quickly become an important location for international production. Movie studios and production companies like 20th Century Fox and Lucasfilm Ltd are flocking to make use of the stunning and unique landscapes of Iceland in all sorts of films from science-fiction and fantasy films to big budget Hollywood productions. The Iceland Movie Pavilion competition is running in collaboration with the Landeigendur Voga ehf who are the current landowners of Vogar farmland.
For this competition Buildner is asking participants to submit designs for a movie pavilion that could be constructed in this beautiful location in Iceland. The pavilion should reflect the essence of Icelandic cinema, its distinctive character and unique history, with the central focus being a small movie theater capable of hosting up to 50 visitors.
The pavilion would need to be a place to introduce visitors to Icelandic cinema as well as offering fans a place to gather and share their passion for film. This could take the form of a small gallery or event space with a cafe or bar that could cater for guests. Participants are encouraged to consider these requirements to make the space engaging and inviting as well as functional. Iceland’s distinctive and remarkable landscapes and natural landmarks should be an inseparable part of the final concept.
