Competition project not shortlisted 

A huge crystal Sea-Shell is transported by the waves near the Kultur Magazinet. The Shell covers the “buildings” of the New Arts Centre (theatres, rehearsal rooms, etc.) gathered around a Piazza-Foyer, integrated with the Magazinet and the Urban Pattern. The Shell protects from the external noise and the harsh seaside weather conditions allowing a very inexpensive and refined cladding of the various “building” elements of the Centre. Maintenance and internal transformation cost are drastically reduced. Pleasant liveability increased. The cost of the Shell Envelop results from the “peeling off” of the weather and sound proof skin of the Arts Centre.
