Virginio Ferrari Contemporary Arts Center
Civic Projects partnered with Jen Park of Jurassic Studio to design an arts center to showcase the work of celebrated artist Virginio Ferrari. Together, we designed a building whose spaces facilitate informal gathering and collaborative work. On the first floor, exhibition and community spaces allow visitors to intermingle before engaging the work in the Ferrari Gallery. Above, artist studios and an archive provide a space for artists, scholars and students to carry out their work, and a dedicated space for screenings and events invites the general public into an activated, artistic space. A filigree screen diffuses light in and surrounds an internal courtyard where visitors can relax and socialize among the art.
