Art of Exposure

Community centre in Zurich, Switzerland.

In this competition we utilised the idea of the continuous landscape with programmatic transparency and intercommunication, in order to increase the opportunities for people to see, hear and/or meet each other. Architecturally this was achieved through creating strategic openings and interrelations between programmes for example the players on the basketball court, which was sunken into the plaza, could be seen and heard from visitors to the supermarket, garage and the second hand shop. All to inspire the idea of a meeting place, in which the "Art of Exposure" (Richard Sennett) assists in the making of the community.
