The complexity of the Maribor Art Gallery influences its design proposal. Besides conveying contemporary cultural and urban functions, the building has to stimulate its environment in a wider sense indicating merging energy by being transparently exciting. The design proposal defines the Maribor Art Gallery as an Urban Playground that is an exciting new function, open to everybody, interprets and integrates art and cultural functions as an open public space with objects to explore, observe and discover. A new space to play with.
Our architectural conception was to give art and culture an urban challenge. The building is a mixture of spaces translated as creative boxes. The building is semi-transparent, so that all citizens can see inside the building and presume.
