Long and narrow like a tube, but solid and unmovable like a block of concrete – in between these two extremes stands the extension to the Marl town hall, designed by Bakema and van den Broek in 1958-62. Their ponderous brutalism resounds through the massive walls of the extension, where the trees on the site have been made to leave their imprint. A relief art work signed by artist Lars Bergström. The position behind the main building makes the extension fall in with the pattern of the place. At the same time, its positioning above the glass boxes of the entrance and the café gives the concrete tube a lightness which is underscored by the long cantilever overlooking the lake. The 7×7 metre narrow art gallery is adapted to the purpose of accommodating temporary sculpture exhibitions. Clear incident lighting from large apertures in various directions varies the character of the 85-metre-long room and links it to the sculpture park outside. A new catwalk over the refurbished piazza points the way directly to the new entrance.

With the Centre d’Art Diane Dufresne, ACDF Architecture has created a new arts centre for the suburban municipality of Repentigny, providing a dynamic core where residents can take in stirring arts and culture without getting on the highway to nearby Montreal. The centre’s architecture, including its siting, massing, circulation and materiality, are instrumental in reinventing the desired community image. It plays with notions of rootedness while gesturing to a vibrant future, instilling a sense of belonging and optimism. Familiar yet distinct, it invites visitors in and encourages long, lingering stays.

From the architect. The first mission of the Acrobatic Arts Center building was placed in the city as a container of culture, in which the citizen forms an essential part of it. it is in this relation where the building is completed.
The proposal is based on the communion of two architectural elements which support activities to develop and allow the solution to problems and intentions raised: A first element is the platform that seeks to tie the city, outside, with the existing topography. This platform allows citizens to connect with the building inside.

Typically, you enter the building, or you stay outside.This building offers a third possibility.This is the third use case climbing on the structure with steps lead up to the highest point of the structure, starting from the ground, resting on different levels, spend time, chatting, and the city is watching the situation.Located parking area on the existing car park, across the board to be open to pedestrian use gives a spaciousness to the city. That the intended use of the cultural center, through the terraces are created with steps has been made more effective.
Pedestrian circulation on the cultural center moved, rising to a new challenge is defined in the vertical.

The concept for an art storage building references the spatial qualities of two world famous museums. These qualities are organized with the building typology of a library in mind. The final result is a CO2 neutral building that is blending into a delicate park in Brauweiler near Cologne, Germany.

Dreams are series of images, thoughts, feelings and sensations that transpire in the mind during sleep. They are smooth stories that can suddenly become rough, violent. They are storylines that unfold, break and come one after another. Strange becomes reality and senses give way to instincts. Dreams become ideas and visions are created by imagination.
