With its site being right across the channel from Amsterdam, the project, a cultural institution, functions as a catalyst to open up the other side of the channel for living in a vast landscape. To fulfill the concept of “opening”, the project introduces an organizational system / space prototype composed of continuous circulation paths as well as architecture surfaces.
Utilizing this system, each layer of architectural program modifies the property of the prototype, thus the space satisfies its use. As an object on the ground, the project is intended to present openness and fluidity.
