SUNDsVALL ART CENTRE AND THEATRES, SWEDEN
Sundsvall, Sweden, 2008
For Sundsvall Cultural Centre 1+1=1 architects have designed an innovative landmark of stunning beauty to establish Sundsvall as a flagship city on the international cultural scene of the new millennium. The building proposal for the centre consists of a mainland building containing a foyer, restaurants, offices, studios and workshops, plus three visually impressive auditoriums, designed to look like floating islands on the Baltic sea. The 12,000 m2 cultural hub is surrounded by a pedestrian precinct to give maximum exposure to the universal appeal of this unique design plan.
