Proposal for a Downtown Cultural Centre in Tartu.
The proposed design is derived from the surrounding environment, through which we create a holistic building. The cultural center is like a landscape object that blends into the surrounding nature, while also leaving a strong enough mark on the city’s architecture. Depending on the functions, we see how the side facing the river is higher and more representative, while the side facing the park is more pavilion-like.
