*술담배공장을 현대미술관으로-[ João Mendes Ribeiro Arquitecto ] Arquipélago_Contemporary Arts Centre

사람과, 지식, 그리고 이벤트의 상호소통과 인터페이스의 공간 - 그를 위한 현대아트센터는 술/담배의 공장이었던 기존 건물과 예술과 문화의 중심이 될 새로운 건설 간의 대화를 극대화 하였다.

Arquipélago 현대아트센터는 선재와 두개의 새로운 건물 간에 조용하지만 다양성을 통해 그 정체성을 획득코자 하였다. 남아있던 공장 부지의 색다른 구역에 공간적으로도 효율성을 갖추면서도 계층적 기능성을 향상시켰다. 그렇게 해서 새로운 건물은 기존 건물이 지녔던 공간성과 화환되지 못한 특별한 조건들을 갖춘 채 필요한 기능을 흡수한다.

Arquipélago - Contemporary Arts Centre seeks to unite the different scales and times of its parts.
It is a transdisciplinary project whose mission is to disseminate, create and produce emerging culture: a space of exchange and interface for people, knowledge and events.
The design of Arquipélago - Contemporary Arts Centre – maintains the industrial character of the whole and highlights the dialogue between an existing building (former factory of alcohol / tobacco) and the new construction (arts and culture center, storage facilities, multipurpose hall / performing arts, laboratories, artist studios).

The Arquipélago - Contemporary Arts Centre acquires its identity by the quiet variation between the preexistence and the two new buildings. The containment strategy of facilities implementation enhances the spatial efficiency and hierarchical functionality of the different areas of the existing factory complex.
The new buildings absorb the required functionalities, with special conditions, not compatible with the spatiality of preexisting buildings.
The project of the Arquipélago does not exaggerate the differences between the old and the new buildings.
On the contrary, it seeks to unite the different scales and times of its parts throughout a pictorial manipulation of the form and materiality of the buildings - the existing constructions are marked by the volcanic stone masonry and the new buildings are characterized by an abstract form, without reference or allusion to any language, built in concrete with local basalt inert continuously working with the variation of surfaces’ textures and rugosity, complementing the mass of the buildings with the emptiness of the patios.
The design is committed to the quality of what exists, showing the typological variations - new buildings are placed next to the existing ones in a serene manner – underlining the architectonical memory of a given period and the new addition, without damaging or subverting the spatial and constructive structures of the whole. Context and contiguity contribute to the autonomy of the object.
The new program reinvents the existent building, making it a meaningful space in a peripheral region in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
The Arquipélago - Contemporary Arts Centre adds meaning to the social and cultural context where it is built. A new Public Space is materialized in a central square/pateo where art feels comfortable and blurs the frontiers between private and public spheres, leisure and work, art and life.
The aspects of the sustainable performance of the buildings were addressed through its materiality (structures, infra-structures) and the absorption of the existing handcrafted knowledge enriched by its timeless way of building. The sustainable measures adopted are passive systems that seek to provide comfort for the users: the density of the concrete walls offer inertia and energy efficiency; the rain water is reused.
