The Centre for Culture and Community (CeCuCo) is designed with flexibility in mind and utilises triangular modules within the construction allowing the building to be adapted to suit the needs of the community.
The triangle shape can be combined to create almost any shape, and as triangles are the strongest shape structurally, it can also serve as a metaphor for the strength of a community.
Part of this flexibility allows for the doors, windows and other openings to have their hinges, height and the angle at which they open to be altered on a whim. This aims to create a playful space which works for all ages.
Modular construction through these geometric shapes can be applied to all kinds of projects. The current six varieties of configurations is expected to range from 8 sq m to 115 sq m with the largest plan designed to accommodate cinema and theatre productions.
With a practical focus on sustainability, the components used were created using natural resources that were easy to assemble, dismantle, and reflect the necessary considerations of the area in which it is being built.
In addition to its use as a cultural centre, the building also serves as proof of concept for flexible architecture that can be used in many different environments and locations around the world.
