Tati/Playtime

Material relating to a Transitional Cities project, titled 'Tati/Playtime'. The project description reads, "A design competition was run by Gap Filler and the winners were asked to construct a temporary cinema to show films by French director Jacques Tati over 2 weeks. The final design was based on the night club scene from the film Playtime and featured an actor opening an invisible door to a cinema constructed of reinforcing bar and pallet seats, and a painted red carpet".
