kaca mikser predaja

open amphitheater

January 20, 2013

The artsy culture that conquers the ex-industrial riverbanks gets an extension to the “Mikser House” culture center – a flexible canopy that shelters an open scene and auditorium for concerts and theater performances. As an ancient garage was converted into a culture center, I imagined this informal auditorium as a ready-made of the industrial heritage found on the site. The canopy would be made of shipping containers, and the rest of the machinery out of other industrial parts of cargo ships. In this way, new use can be contemplated within the industrial collective memory of this “genius loci”. The project is an idea of how the entire neighborhood could be rehabilitated in this manner I consider sustainable in both ecological and social sense.
