Proposal & 3D Visualization
Culture, Art and Life Center Architectural Project
The main shape orients key points in its surroundings, creating varying urban spaces around the building with great light and wind conditions, and gives a changing perspectival experience of the structure when moving around the area.
Rows of windows joint together connect the composition of the building and accentuate the overall concept of shape.
A spectacular atrium - the heart of the building – opens up beneath the large skylights of the roof terrace. Each floor structure has a unique shape towards the opening of the atrium, making the bright room vibrant and dynamic. The building is publicly accessible at ground level and facilitates diagonal shortcuts between the urban spaces via the atrium.
The building is designed with a detailed principle of flexibility, allowing an optional division and use of the rooms along the façade. Stairs, escalators and plant rooms are placed in the inner cores of the building.
Their reflection of light gives the façade an ever changing expression, depending on the weather, time and viewing angle.
The effect is strengthened by a facade cladding with a large vertical relief effect which at once softens the visual weight of the large building volume and emphasizes the building’s gradually ascending character.
