Paisajes Emergentes, along with Productora, shared with us their proposal for the Centre for Promotion of Science Competition in Belgrade, Serbia. More images and architect’s description after the break.
To define the Centre a series of circular perimeters are traced on the plot, allowing each one to materialize in different forms, height and program: they can be closed buildings, open science gardens, voids or defined spaces in the park. Together they create a architectonic ensemble of cylindrical forms, and allow a continuous interaction between the activities inside and outside of the building through the openings in these cylinders. The connecting areas of the building are mainly organized below ground level under the park, allowing users of the science park to walk over it and look down into the galleries and gardens. The Centre for Promotion of Science thus becomes a building that extends his radius of influence over the whole plot blurring the differences between the science centre and the Science Park.
