ArtA | The Arts Cluster . Arnhem

BIG . Allard Architecture . + archdaily . rijnboog

ArtA will house the Museum Arnhem and the Focus Film Theater in a new cultural facility - bringing together creative professionals, entrepreneurs, artists and visitors locally and regionally. Attractively located at the waterfront, the axis of the site forms a symbolic connection between the historic city center and the Rhine River. We propose a simple building volume with two poles: The Film Theater facing the city and the Art Museum facing the river.

Combining a contemporary exhibition facility with a film theater in a vibrant public building is paradoxical challenge: Most successful contemporary art galleries are characterized by the spatial qualities of industrial warehouses: Large open floor plans with generous ceiling heights and great flexibility for internal divisions and daylight control. The film theater, on the other hand, is inherently a black box - an introvert space for contemplation and focus.
ArtA fuses the two traditional architectural archetypes, the Black Box and the White Cube, and creates a gradient of transitional spatial conditions that lends itself to new hybrid programs of art and performance. A simple twist of the building volume generates a diagonal public art plaza that connects the ground floor with the roof top. The Art Plaza creates encounters between the various users of the building - blurring the boundaries between art, public life, education and recreation. The building becomes a unique offspring - at once organic and rational, transparent and solid, unique and flexible, extrovert and introvert.
