UNStudio as Architects

The Groninger Forum is a lively podium for information, presentation and participation, where interaction and flexibility play a central role. The building is designed to fit seamlessly into its surroundings, whilst offering a new prototype for interdisciplinary relationships. The main occupants of the building – museum, library, cinema and archive – collaborate on activity and event programs, creating a varied and dynamic venue. Along with the numerous meeting places for visitors – news café, restaurant, bookshop, roof terrace, sky lounge and zig-zagging escalators - the architecture supports and encourages this collaboration and the participation of the public. The glass façade also plays an important role in the relationship between the city and the building. This transparent façade forms an interactive, three-dimensional media screen, whilst facilitating views of the activity taking place inside.
