Avant-garde project of the museum Sosno art gallery building in Nice (Alpes-Maritimes, France) – result of joint creative work of the Lithuanian architect Rytis Daukantas and the French sculptor Sosno, whose works are characterized by abstract symbolic images, to break stereotypes and appeal to imagination of viewer. Building, integrated into a giant sculpture, provides space for contemporary art gallery.
22 meter high structure will contain 600 square feet of living space, located on either side of nucleus, which is hidden in a giant head. Hidden core stabilizes console of the structure. These “wings” simulate a beam passing through the bust, at the bottom of which is glass-enclosed auditorium.
Access to the four galleries located in the console parts of the “beam” is through the central stair and vertical lifts. Additional facilities involve placing a souvenir shop, a multimedia class, lounges and conference rooms designed for 45 people.
Daylight enters to the building through the gallery solid wooden shutters, which form the unity of the facade and the filter is too bright sunlight. The materials provided for a project such as iron, aluminum, tempered glass, wood.
