dc.description.abstractThis project investigates transparency and movement as the main measured elements that define space. These elements seek to articulate distinct and memorable places throughout the building, acknowledging its unique setting along the Potomac River in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. Architecture and nature as opposite elements combine here to define a building in which water, light and views become the main architectural agents set in dialog with the natural surroundings. An existing boardwalk along the levee transforms into a transparent enclosed space that connects both city and water on opposite sides. Programmatically a series platforms, walls and volumes are inhabited by a cultural center. The cultural center contributes to the artistic spirit and identity of the city by concentrating various artistic representations.en
