Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos designed the ‘Espacio de Creación Contemporánea Andaluz’, an art gallery for exhibitions, events and artistic productions. The architects draw their inspiration from the moorish architectural culture of Cordoba with its mysterious geometrical order and rhythmic nesting. The spatial complexity arises from endless sequences of one simple basic form, the Hexagon, that you can find everywhere. Funnel-shaped light wells bring indirect daylight to the inside and let the raw concrete appear warm and bright.
This project is part of the exhibition Culture:City, that is asking questions about the impact of art and culture on cities and their architecture. Visit the exhibition from 15th of March – 26th of May 2013 at Hanseatenweg 10, 10557 Berlin.
