According to the competition tender, the 320fok Art Gallery, operating since 2007 in the industrial buildings of the former Bread Factory, is being rebuilt to become a worldclass contemporary cultural, educational and technical centre with notable architectural values.
Earlier this year, the City of Siófok had announced an international architectural tender aiming the complex re-building of 320fok and its utilization as a cultural centre.
The institution established the presence of the region within the fields of contemporary art since 2007. It has been offering exhibition space to the representation of highly qualified, and professionaly acclaimed artworks as well as professional events, which successfully linked Siófok to the progressive national institutions that promote and represent contemporary art.
The award winning architectural plan is going to transform the industrial space to a multifunctional, transformable exhibition teritory, with a high class gallery and gastronomic units.
The primary aim behind the environmental reconstruction is to build an iconic cultural establishment that could be the key feature element of the image of Siófok. It should as well provide space to 3 basic functions (artistic, educational, technical) and to additional functions such as gastronomical and commercial functions on the highest possible level, according to the key features of contemporary architecture and design.
The first sheduled plan of the reconstruction - cca 6500 sqm building and parking space – is being built until 2012, while the second schedule plan is due to be finished by the end of the decade.....Bustler
