The Culture Shed
Based on the multicultural identity of the city and the strategies of the Bristol City Council that seeks to promote Bristol as an international city, the project aims to explore how people from different cultural backgrounds can gather and build social relationships together, by showing and expressing different aspects and ideas from their particular cultures.
The proposed building through its design intents to embrace the values of inclusivity and diversity and allow people to show what makes them different. The building proposal also tries to motivate those people to engage in different activities and help the formation of a multicultural community, where everyone can equally inform and express thoughts about society. Architecturally, the building by following principles of High-tech architecture such as flexibility and adaptability and the code of “honesty through expression” achieves to create pleasant and comfortable environments for its users as well as respond perfectly to the industrial atmosphere of the area.
