Experimental Puppetry Arts Centre

The concept for this building revolves around the idea of human shapes and forms echoing the art of movement and flow. The aim of their use on the facades being to illustrate the artistic character of the building's function.

The building itself represents a simple orthogonal shape fitting seamlessly into the surrounding urban context.

The facades feature wooden vertical lines serving as a setting for a story of puppet arts.

Decorative elements come together to shape human hands and smaller puppet figures.

Small metal squares get lit at night to complete the scene - a representation of stars falling down for the show. A show in which human artists give way to puppets who become the stars of the night.
