Culture and Exhibition Center

Best Architectural Project by a Student

About the project
The center is located at the crossroads near a future underground station, so the square in front of the building serves as an entrance gate to it. As well as the building, the area around it is multifunctional, interesting, full of light reflections and optical illusions. This all forms a unique friendly environment, which is necessary for a developing residential area.

Slats, the main element of the project, create a facade with a dynamic relief effect. They have a reflective surface on one side and are refractive orange on the other, so the space inside is lit with warm light. This helps maintain indoor insolation and ensures an inviting atmosphere to attract youths.
