Project Description

Project idea: Design of a gallery of contemporary art created from the combination of two sculptural blocks. Sculptural elements connect the underground and above-ground parts. The main body is made up of vertical tubular elements penetrating into the underground gallery, partially hiding the periscopes. The main and most important element are the velux roof skylights used in the project. The aboveground sculptural arrangement which is the vestibule of the building hidden underground, is located on the line of three viewing axes. Internal periscopes show the most beautiful view of Szczecin on the buildings of Wały Chrobrego.
