Whereas on the south side the building’s shell opens fully onto the adjacent river, terrace-like steps extrapolate the partly allocated, partly alterable functional zones as well as the interior’s character and atmosphere, by allowing access to the exhibition level, to the projection rooms and restaurant.
Flowing transitions between the single functional areas underline the distinctive continuity and the dynamic of the room flow, thus transforming the usage into a physiologically tangible sequence of constantly changing spatial impressions. Movement and light generate standpoint-dependent, variegated atmospheric connections which oscillate between extrovert landscape reference and introverted spatial concentration. Accompanied by these variable perceptions, the perambulation of the building resembles a movie sequence with changeable visual effects.(www.dmaa.at)
