05. Cultural center

Location Vaulx-en-velin. France
Status Academic works
Year 2010

This cultural building is composed of a music school, a library, and an exhibition room. Regarding to the plot, the program only occupied the fourth of it. Then the void becomes a really challenging topic in this situation. The chosen idea is to use it as a spatial unifier element. The « between two » topic is as important as the building itself.

In this case the program was burst and thought in a centripal way around a space which have to gather it. The second main position is in the specific use of the ground as a way of discover the building. The ground, intrinsic element of the architecture, raises according to plans which able us to generate the entrance within the building. Underneath those ones we also find circulations which articulate the project.

The cladding in the front facade borrows its materiality and its roughness from the public square in order to strengthen the principle of lifting plans. The inside is radically different. This one has to be extremely clear because of all different activities which are taking part in it and asking light.

The building is designed according to two concepts, one of the light and one of the path. The central point, filled with light, helps to understand the functioning of the building. It shows to the visitor the idea that to go from one space to another you have to cross a dark zone. This choice of having a concomitance of bright and dark spaces is emphasized by the using of bright materials, mostly related to white hue.
