Zagreb Dance Center in Croatia by 3LHD Architect

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

The opening of big movieplex cinemas in Zagreb has led to the dying out of old cinema theaters in the city centre. The City of Zagreb, who is the owner of the old cinema Lika, decided to reuse the space for new cultural facilities. In that scenario old cinema Lika was given the role of a new dance centre.

Mosque and Cultural Center – Room For Prayer

Volumes

By placing the new addition of the Islamic Cultural centre next to the existing building we where able to set the parameters and proportions of the new part freely. The new building is raised above the ground by round, slender pillars. The volume is connected to the existing building by a passage, linking the new building to the communication of the existing one. The proposed volume is closed to the outside and opening up on the inside. The concrete facade has an intricate pattern working with shifting planes, creating shadow effects and an elegant and playful expression.

More projects by Zaha Hadid

Our designs for a new performing arts centre were inspired the ancient city of Petra – its interplay with nature and the processes of erosion that have reshaped its contours. In this new building erosion becomes the sole means of articulating public spaces, while remaining masses contain the performance spaces.
