An artificial and daylight design for a new build contemporary visual arts complex by architect Rafael Viñoly. The centre provides flexible presentation and exhibition spaces, a cafe and restaurants, an auditorium, conference facilities and meeting areas.
The crescent-shaped building is wrapped in a unique golden coloured copper-aluminium alloy creating a dramatic presence to draw in the crowds. The wow factor continues inside with the entrance foyer, a double height space that is flooded with daylight.
BDP worked with the architect to analyse and sculpt the building to maximise natural daylight.
