Located in the middle of a restructured district in Nevers, the new Cultural Centre is a public facility open to the neighborhood, which will host local organizations.
The building must develop the identity of the district. The location of the building will preconfigure the organization of the public space, surrounded by the Avenue Lyauteyto the north, renovated housing to the west and the south and new housing to the east.

In celebration of the upcoming 50th anniversary of Expo 67, the monumental World Fair that took place in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 1967, Dror proposes a new vision for Île Sainte-Hélène: an enchanting cultural space that embraces R. Buckminster Fuller’s Biosphere. The 50th anniversary of Expo 67, coinciding with the 375th anniversary of the city’s founding, will begin April 27, 2017, a year from tomorrow.

The basement of the small one-story building, formerly used for laundry and storage, now houses a space for exhibitions, lectures, and concerts, as well as it accommodates Franz Kafka’s private library. On the first level of the building the Franz Kafka Society has located its offices. The previously dark and dismal spaces of the building are now washed in daylight coming through newly inserted windows and skylights that provide unexpected views to the towers of the Maisel Synagogue. Marcela Steinbachová (Skupina) and Steven Holl Architects have deliberately situated these windows off axis to the interiors. Inside the building new visual connections through openings and inspection holes give its small spaces depth and create visual connections.

The Children’s Culture House offers various play facilities and programmes for children of all ages.
Located on a street corner, the structure mediates between the adjoining brick buildings, which are of different height. In it’s form and use of materials, however, the centre is quite distinct. A silvery aluminium skin, perforated by square windows is drawn over the roof and outer walls and the lower height at the corner allows sunlight to enter the rear courtyard. The expression of the Children’s Culture House is surprising and imaginative: the roof and facades are treated the same, and the House does not have a “start” and “end” as ordinary houses do.

The Franchino mill stands as a metaphor waiting to become habitat, to recover its dimension, to be inhabited to say its words.
The word is mill; meaning use to grind, to pulverise, to turn the heavy things into light ones, to destroy the whole in order to achieve subtlety. It is something used to change the matter into a different thing, the flour of language, a way of naming us.

The Cultural Center of Stjørdal will be an important node, both locally and in the region. The center will become an inviting place for all people interested in culture in one way or another—a building where people of all kinds can explore and develop their abilities and talents. With its church, the cultural center will function as a worthy venue for all kinds of ceremonies for the inhabitants. What is more, the visitors at the hotel will contribute to vitalizing the building and the park. The project is anchored in and inspired by the history and culture of its location. At the same time, the architecture should convey its modern function and the pulse of the time and place. The center will serve as a platform for a broad cultural concept, including a wide range of art, dance, music, film, and other media. The Cultural Center of Stjørdal is designed to be an inspiring place that provides the visitors with experiences and opportunities, thus contributing to a rich locational, cultural and architectural experience.

For the Serpentine Pavilion 2016, we have attempted to design a structure that embodies multiple aspects that are often perceived as opposites: a structure that is free-form ret rigorous, modular yet sculptural, both transparent and opaque, both box and blob.
