Education and Cultural Exchange Center

Role: Project Designer

This proposed 28,000 SF temporary facility is to function both as a learning center and a think tank for historical reflection, research and education of other cultures and religions.


The main project objective is to provide a non-political forum where two distinct cultural groups can come together to share their heritages and to compare the unique characteristics and intrinsic similarities between all cultures.  The two sliding volumes are unified by an interactive media facade that continuously broadcasts photos and videos of current cultural events to the urban context.  The proposed facility also includes a small multi-cultural digital museum and provides guided tours of the city to educate the visitors.
