Gruppa & Anagram A-U, 2 young practices with base in the Netherlands, Barcelona and Athens participated in the national competition for a new cultural center in the city of Modřice in Czechia.
The proposal deals with the reuse of the 2 existing buildings of the plot aiming to increase their historical value and reestablish their role for the city. Simultaneously it introduces a connector that is a pitched roof canopy which accommodates a new library for the citizens.
The connector works as an extension of the city, inviting the citizens to spend time on the complex and follow the cultural events of Modřice.
The proposal is a single-storey building, a decision which enhances the value of the ground floor, the extrovert character of the program and the connections to the city. Source by ANAGRAM A-U & GRUPPA STUDIO.
