Dunkirk Arts Quarter in France by Francois Blanciak Architect

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

Article source: Francois Blanciak Architect

The project proposes a unique fusion between architecture and urbanism, within which a building becomes a neighborhood by eroding itself into an array of particles. Thus, it establishes an inverted poetical relation with the particles that emanate from the industrial chimneys of the port of Dunkirk, France. In terms of program, the project includes a theater, numerous workshops, exhibition and administrative spaces within its most vertical part, followed by artist residencies, student housing, as well as regular urban blocks with semi-private gardens.

This is a building in the neighborhood of Boedo, in a typical batch of 8.66m which has the special fund that s is adjacent to an urban courtyard with plenty of trees, where there is a football school and a small square. The view on this green match the best direction: north. This neighborhood of CABA, like many others, is changing its appearance as a result of the strong demand for multifamily housing produced in recent years. Without us even lose neighborhood characteristics, begins to suffer and enjoy the inevitable changes brought about any proposal for densification of a city.
