Center of Slavic Culture

Best Architectural Project by a Student

About the project
The Center of Slavic Culture in terms is morphologically close to nature and should look like a natural part of the scenery, a laconic concrete building with geological features.
Planning solutions are harmonious and follow the empirical intuition concept. The building is interpreted as a living organism, favoring rather organic shape synthesis than geometrical modularity.
The major outside stairs represent a way that a human is always on – moving, breathing, and musing. The spiral way along the outside stairs goes through every space, prompting to move further, see more, and raise higher (up to the roof and to the sky).
