Study project at RAVB, nominated for the Iktinos price.
A visitor is guided by the architecture, walking through the main entrance onto a slight slope into a round entrance room with a bamboo dome, continuing through the courtyard to an exhibition or lecture hall.
The facades are inspired by stacked blocks of stone which, due to their imperfections, inequality and weathering, create a very basal architectural effect.
The molds of the concrete sandwich panels are positioned slightly skew during the drying process in the factory. The rough side is evened out and roughened with a broom. This gives the shadow effect of the stacked blocks, but all the panels will also age different due to their different angles. This is the effect of the stacked blocks in a modern building method.
The clean concrete inside is filled with bamboo slats, after which the cables and holes can be worked away.
