Abstract [en]

The Go Down Arts Centre is a proposal for a new building to an existing organisation in Nairobi, Kenya. The proposal relates to the scale of the city by making a statement on a future urban path, and by welcoming the city in to the building. The proposal houses both activities affiliated to Go Down, such as studios and rehersal rooms, as well as opportunities for the visitor to meet and interact with the culture produced at Go Down, both in formal and informal settings. The building is closed to its surroundings, apart from a grand entrance towards the urban path. There, the city passes through the building to an inner courtyard, where the communication to all the rooms and activities takes place. From the exterior courtyard, the buildning acts as an halftone screen towards a darker, more specific and more temperated room, where it meets the outer wall.

Abstract [sv]

The Go Down Arts Centre är ett förslag på en ny byggnad till en existerande verksamhet i Nairobi, Kenya. Förslaget relaterar till stadens skala, genom att utmärka sig på ett framtida urbant stråk och bjuda in staden i byggnaden. I byggnaden finns plats både för verksamheter knutna till Go Down, i form av ateljéer, studios, replokaler, osv. och för besökaren att möta och integrera med kulturen, både i formella och informella sammanhang. Själva byggnaden är sluten utåt, med en stor öppning vid stråket, där staden passerar in i byggnaden till en innergård där kommunikationerna till alla rum och verksamheter återfinns. Från den exteriöra innergården går byggnaden genom ett raster mot ett allt slutnare, mörkare och mer tempererat rum tills den möter den tunga ytterväggen.
