* Architecture: Nieuwegein City Hall and Cultural Center by 3XN Architects

Posted by the editors on Thursday, 29 March 2012

Architecture: Nieuwegein City Hall and Cultural Center by 3XN Architects: “..Architecturally the building takes its point of departure from a central and bright atrium from where a sculptural staircase soars up through the building and connects the many diverse facilities – indeed facilities not normally found in a City Hall. By bringing together the local library, citizen service centre, café, cultural center and commercial spaces in the building, the City Hall fuses with a range of everyday activities. This creates life in the building all day, and strengthens the connection to the commercial and residential area surrounding the building…”  Perforated exterior skin, atrium..
