Gabriela Mistral Cultural Center / Cristian Fernandez Arquitectos, Lateral Arquitectura & Diseño. Quarter Cultural Center / Mikolai Adamus. Mikolai Adamus shared with us his design for the Quarter Cultural Center located in Gdansk, Poland.
The main idea was to supplement the empty square with tissue which surrounds the site for a more intimate and open expression. More images on the project after the break. The front of the building was raised in order to maintain the existing communication on the plot As a result, this provided an intimate interior while simultaneously opening up more to the surroundings which accomplished the intentions of the design concept.

Architects: 3XN Architects Location: Molde, Norway Project Year: 2012 Photographs: Adam Mork Project Area: 5,800 sqm Contractor: BrÃ¸drende RÃ¸sand AS Engineer: Norconsult AS Landscape: Molde Municipality The Norwegian city of Molde has just 25,000 inhabitants, but every July the biggest stars of jazz and about 100,000 jazz enthusiasts flock to the town’s world famous international jazz festival.

As we understand the nature of Teenager’s Center, the whole program was divided into a serial of small individual functional spaces which was utilized by various types of open spaces such as courtyard, plaza and lane. The kids’ adventure was encouraged by the environment. We hope them experiencing what they might achieve in a small town, such as numerous possibilities of destination, wandering and meeting with unexpected. In the other word, we create a place of social interaction and human care for the teenagers.
