The Cultural Centre is not a building. It is a hub that provides a vital service and thus energises the life of the community. It has a presence in the urban context but fundamentally opens itself by it?s transparency and flexibility. The form is simple and democratic. A ?tower of light? is created by the solid vertical circulation element and acts as a visual and symbolical marker to the community.
Lawrence:King?s proposals were exhibited in the final 16 shortlisted competition entries at the RIBA Gallery, London in 2002.
