SUSTAINABLE COLABORATION CENTER & ART SPACE
FLUX Art Lab will continue to grow, develop, and evolve over the years. Regardless of its size, the project will always require a space where people can gather, initiate discussions, and foster engagement. The objective is to create an art space capable of accommodating working offices, as well as various exhibitions, seminars, and events. To ensure maximum flexibility, shipping containers are used as modular units for a temporary structure. This sustainable solution enables adaptation to changing circumstances and integration into existing structures and institutions. The project's customizable office and center are designed to support urban development and can contribute to the revitalization of unused urban areas. Constructing the space from recycled containers not only offers cost-effectiveness and flexibility compared to conventional solutions, but it also makes a statement about the project's dedication to art and eco-friendly innovation.
