Contemporary Intervention Within A Historical Context
Replacement of a post-war building and integration of a contemporary multimedia and learning centre within a historical context. The concept of the IdeaStore aims at providing a programme based on a new type of information and learning provision. Whilst integrated within the historic background of Malta's capital city, the building was designed as a simple stack of flexible functions. This concept encourages local people to make the widest possible use of the facilities provided; a person who starts off by browsing in the audio-visual section might decide to accompany their child to the teen library or go see an exhibition which is currently being held.
