François Blanciak Architect – Dunkirk Arts Quarter Competition Proposal
The project proposes a unique fusion between architecture and urbanism, within which a building becomes a neighborhood by eroding itself into an array of particles.
Thus, it establishes an inverted poetical relation with the particles that emanate from the industrial chimneys of the port of Dunkirk, France. In terms of program, the project includes a theater, numerous workshops, exhibition and administrative spaces within its most vertical part, followed by artist residencies, student housing, as well as regular urban blocks with semi-private gardens.
The seemingly random accumulation of cubes between the most compact part of the building and the smaller residential urban blocks creates a system of balconies and terraces that enhances its three-dimensional mix of functions, and facilitates communication between the various dwellers of the complex.
