Here’s another competition proposal by Copenhagen-based firm JAJA Architects. The title of the concept is “Culture Bazaar”.
This is how JAJA describe the project:
The Culture Bazaar is a project that aims to dissolve the boundaries between interior and exterior. Resulting in a strong relation between house and city - creating a space for open exchange of art, culture and ideas.
Most cultural institutions are, traditionally, spatially introvert. The programs are isolated without external relation or influence - depriving them from potential synergy that combined would produce a greater experience.
Instead of isolating the activities, our ambition is to create an open Art and Culture House that can be an incubator for art and culture as well as urban life. A house that invites, and engages, artists, people and urban space to create a public domain for all.
Inspired by vernacular architecture, we propose to organize the building’s Public Lobby (foyer, cafe and shops) around the central program – the large flexible performance hall – and unfold its full potential to dynamically affect the public lobby and surrounding urban space.
The performance hall is the heart of the building and is conceived as a highly flexible space. It has the capacity to engage the surrounding urban life and shift its character to accommodate any sort of activity – from concerts to poem recitals, conferences to plays or book conventions to movie showings. The limits are only within the user’s creative imagination.
On the ground floor the backstage/service areas are located in the back - towards the ring road – while the Public Lobby is facing the street on the other three sides.
The public lobby is the interface between the entire Art and Culture House and the surrounding urban realm. It is simultaneously an extension of the performance hall and the surrounding urban space. This effectively allows an expansion of the stage floor into the public lobby, and further, into the urban realm – or conversely, the urban realm into the lobby and further into the performance hall.
The idea of the public lobby is spatially similar to the traditional bazaar, it encourages interaction with its urban surroundings that mutually diversify each other to create an urban space that is influenced by the activities of the House.
