Groningen Building : Latest Design

Groninger Forum is a new type of public building; an innovative center for debate that aspires to blur the boundaries between Library, Museum and Cinema. A public ‘square’ winds up and makes all the ‘pores’ of the building accessible. The intelligent organization of open and closed functions creates an explicit figure: a 3D logo for the public character of the institute.
