Follow after the break for a extensive gallery of the final product and design imagery.
Architecture within urban space has the power to attract, guide or motivate. This is the goal of MOLO – culture pavilion for Martin it aims to create opportunities for people to relax, for a community to meet and organize cultural events. We are opening to public a long neglected site in the town center with a contemporary architectural sculpture and creating a space dedicated to culture all at the same time. The open and dynamic design of MOLO pavilion gives everybody the freedom to decide on its use, for a small concert, as an alternative theater, for a summer reading or movie screening.
