Réhabilitation du Centre de l'art expérimental à Yerevan.
mai - juin 2019
Description - extrait:
‘...The Project design aims to revive the Armenian Center for Contemporary
Experimental Art with architectural tools and ideas as follows:
1. Urban connection.
Connecting two urban parts of the city –Vernissage Market with 33rdDistrict
on the North –South axis by creating a “green” corridor between two of the emblematic
buildings –NPAK and Office building of Yerevan Project Institute.
Opening NPAK’s facilities to the adjacent building by making a cafeteria on 3 levels
accessible from each side of the West –East axis.
2. Urban existence
Making the NPAK building with its piazza participate in the flow of the Vernissage Market
by the development of the
cinema with the giant screen on the North Façade
but also by placing the unique bookstore in front of the main walkway.
3. New Identity
Finding the new identity of the building by creating the iconic forms for the extension
parts with the “flying” staircases as the heart of the project where all users
of the building meet. Full height museum hall rising from ground to the rooftop
with its trees visible from the surroundings as a statement of the modern approach
of the emerging institution towards green architecture and the quality of the proposed
experience. Considering that nowadays technology with nature in its experimental
character needs to be present in the image of 21st century’s city...’
