CINEMA BATALHA 3: SCULPTURE | Old Portuguese Stuff


The urban lot where the cinema was built was strangely shaped and small; the project was modernist and privileged asymmetry. Thus this hall was born, with a stylized figurative sculpture in plaster at the apex of the converging lines of the room. The architect, Artur Andrade, had ties to the communist party and you can see this nods vaguely to Russian Constructivist in its interplay of elements to create visual dynamism.

The walls in laminate wood and sofa are from an unfortunate renovation carried out in the 80s.
