linéaire A architecture has completed the fourth side of a square located in aurillac, france, comprised of three historic barracks buildings by adding a cinema. its layout defines a spacious and legible square, offering a flexible new public space for hosting cultural events such as the aurillac’s international street theatre festival. compact and efficient in its function, the ‘cristal cinema’ wraps around the full height entrance hall, which peels away to enhance the view between carmes street and the clock building.

the project’s sculptural expression implies the motion inherent to cinema and was envisaged as a rock crystal grown out of the square, its faces continuously playing with light throughout the day and night. the coating instead becomes the garment of the building, with a double-skin system that leaves a great freedom of artistic expression while strengthening the isolation and barrier qualities of the complex.
