European Film Center

The project stems from the two great opportunities that characterize the competition: on the one hand the desire to create an expressive and representative building for the new European Film Center; on the other hand, the opportunity to transform the entire site into a large public space that becomes a meeting place between the nearby historic city of Toruń and the recently built one. To respond to this dualism, the project proposes two overlapping elements: the new public space, conceived as a three-dimensional landscape reminiscent of a Greek theatre – and the new building, articulated through a series of volumes set in the landscape itself.
