The center includes a new building - 400 m² and a part of the old Academy building - 450 m². A part of the site area (1200 m²) was occupied by old storage and jerry-building covering a total of ​​300 m², the demolition of which opened up the additional space for public use.The roof represents a green terrace with access through the open-air auditorium stairs, which are oriented to the Cazimir-Keshco residential monument. The task was to preserve the historical background as much as possible, but also, on the other hand, the goal was to create a mixed space by transforming the courtyard into an active urban zone, accessible for all visitors, also making the building useful by making the roof exploitable. The new construction represents a volume of reinforced concrete, covered with CORten-steel; on the concrete façade the bas-reliefs fragments are symbolizing the human nature. The furniture and part of ceiling lighting were designed by the author especially for this center. In the creation of decorative elements for the center, the architect worked closely with the students, artists and Academy’s professors.
