Jinyi Cinemas Guangzhou Haizhucheng IMAX, nicknamed “Meteor Cinema,” is a two-story cinema located in a shopping mall in Guangzhou. The process of filmmaking inspired the One Plus Partnership, Ltd. design team to think of a meteor shower. A movie takes years to complete; it is the result of the hard work of a large team of people. The designers wanted to pay tribute to filmmakers through the design of this cinema, reminding audiences of the passion and effort filmmakers have cultivated for their relatively short-lived enjoyment.

Inspired by the characters, stories and locations of the popular Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, Treasure Cove is a pirate haven—an island that’s been taken over by pirates. Pirates are in control of Treasure Cove, creating their own society in the existing English and Spanish landmarks. Thanks to its interesting history, Treasure Cove is a mix of architectural styles and influences. Before the Spanish arrived, the island was home to native peoples.

This Nanjing cinema is located next to historical buildings but also chic and modern architecture, perfectly illustrating the East meets West vibe. Thus inspired, One Plus Partnership combined traditional and modern elements to highlight the importance of sound in movies from characters’ dialogue to sound effects and musical scores. It was challenging to turn this conceptual idea into interior design as sound is itself invisible, so the designers created a 3D portrayal of sound waves.

Forage is date night crafted. Forage elevates the date night experience by using augmented reality to lead the users on a scavenger hunt for ingredients to a special meal in various neighborhoods of their city, leading to a final recipe reveal. The objective was to use augmented reality as a wayfinding solution and feature, to create a viable app prototype with broad market appeal. Forage is a romantic, interactive hunt for foodies. This application was designed for the user to maintain control over the experience.

American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) is San Francisco’s preeminent theater company. The 50-year-old arts nonprofit recently commissioned the design and renovation of a derelict cinema on San Francisco’s Market Street.
