Attractor –Interactive Youth Center

size: 2.700 m 2
status: Master Project
year: 2009

The idea was to overcome some of the problems of the city of Belgrade by improving its cultural level. Here occurs necessity for connection between existing material structures and contemporary needs for public spaces usage. Intention was to create the valuable place for urban rest, communication and various activities. We chose downtown location, nearby Knez Mihajlova Street, the main urban pedestrian area. Desire was to create an urban magnet, the center of attraction in city networks-cultural center for public gatherings available to everybody. The Attractor has several aspects, which allows non-uniform utilization: functions inside-cultural activities and info point, public space-open amphitheatre, green area-urban oasis in city nucleus and part of the structure in a form of canopy, which protects the street and preserves its values.
