ArtA is a proposed cultural center to be built in arnham on the banks of the river rhine in the netherlands. the project will reconnect the site with the waterfront, housing both the museum arnhem and the focus film theater, bringing together creative professionals, entrepreneurs and artists.

 

one of four international practices to submit competition entries, bjarke ingels group (BIG) has proposed a simple program of space combining two contrasting architectural typologies – the white cube and the black box. while many successful contemporary art galleries are often characterized by large open floor plans and generous ceiling heights, a film theater forms an introverted volume designed for contemplation and focus. the successful integration and balance of these archetypes ensures a diverse and vibrant civic facility. the building’s primary volume is twisted to generate a diagonal arts plaza that connects the ground floor with the roof top. this public space creates encounters between the different users of the building, blurring divisions between art, education and recreation.
