UNTER.Wellen.Born to? Kulturpalast Unterwellenborn 1954 - 2054

The task of this project at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar was to propose a new use for the former cultural palace, built in the then East German town of Unterwellenborn.
As the initial topic of my design I have carefully chosen LIGHT, which is connected to everything visual: optics, astronomy, graphics, film or art. The second part of the input is the historical meaning and the over-regional connection of the palace, connecting and providing a meeting space for Europe once split by the Iron Curtain.
After the unique process of chronological charting of my own cultural experience, I have chosen festivals and subsequent expositions related to both initial topics as the specific use of the building (along with regular cultural events).
They would be an youth UN simulation, the DOM (German Optical Museum) would have there its rural subsidiary, like the yearly Weimar facade projection festival Genius Loci.
In the interior I have designed workshop rooms and full barriere-free access.
