The roofs of the Busan Cinema Center.

The Busan Cinema Center (BCC) has been built between 2007 and 2011 in the Southkorean metropolis Busan. The BCC will be the future location for the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF), which is one of the most important film festivals in Asia. Two roofs with immense dimensions are spanning between a massive building comprising several cinemas and a big theatre and between a building for administrational use. The two roofs are protecting the open air areas of the BCC and are the characteristic elements of the architectural design. The so-called small roof is a single spanning roof with a span width of app. 110 m. The big roof is a spectacular canopy cantilevering 85 m. It is the longest cantilevering roof structure in the world.
