This new arts centre contains a museum dedicated to the South Korean artist Nam June Paik. At the same time, it functions as a gallery and as a centre for multimedia research and communication. The two-storey exhibition hall, integrated tactfully into the surrounding parkland, is enclosed within a dark glazed envelope. Made from reflective and printed panes of glass, this envelope offers varied, sometimes abstract, reflections of its surroundings and therefore helps the structure to blend into its settings. The materials selected correspond to the idea of the "ready-made" and have been used as raw materials without any further refinement.
