Weightlessness within Solidity. Reflective Community Centre
Reflective Community Centre is a new human-centred, non-religious architecture located in Dean Village, Edinburgh.
The design reconnects all people from both the smaller village context and the urban context of the city. It is dedicated to the community: relaxation, reflection, conversations, learning process, and human help. The building as an integrated contextual intervention represents a grounded solid mass, that symbolises material’s durability and human’s strength, and an internal lightweight of features and structure, as a feeling of floating in human’s process of reflection. The two characteristics are strongly connected to the brief of humanist architecture.
