Culture forms and creates identity from large communities down to a single individual. In the most delicate features of every facade, every person and the design of every spatial concept lies a manifestation of culture shaped by a feeling of community, by history and by an intellectual demand.
With the embodiment of a cultural spirit arises a desire for artistic expression, which can be shown in a written, figurative, physical and auditory form. Architects thus install a threshold between the artists and their environment translating their thoughts into spatial atmospheres.
This volume displays museums, event spaces and libraries as voices and as settings for culture, as well as places that above all unite, encourage encounters, initiate discussions and inspire intercultural exchange.
