Perceptual Twist from Parabol Studio

Architectural bureau Parabol Studio has presented a proposal called Perceptual Twist for a new art gallery in the Slovenian city of Maribor. The building Perceptual Twist is composed of four continuous loops, merging into a one space. Each loop is a full-fledged exhibition center with its own artistic program: the Children’s Museum, the Architecture Museum, the Creative Industrial Museum, and the Digital Arts Museum. The total area of art galleries is nearly 15,000 square meters. The concept of an arts gallery, which brings together different kinds of creativity and at the same time recognizes the value of each of them, symbolically embodied in endless motion "loops" of the building, like a Mebius strip.
