Yele Art Centre

cultural icon

On a prominent site overlooking the expansive blue lake, mountains and forest, this multi-purpose arts centre provides flexible display and event space in a large hall with a stair leading to public viewing deck. The sculptural contemporary project is conceived as a gigantic rock combined with a lantern to tie natural allusions with cultural associations. The building engages with its landscape setting at the entrance, and visibly lifts up to form a spectacular glazed opening facing the lake.
