BIG刚刚赢得了美国犹他州金博尔艺术中心国际竞赛头奖,该中心将于2015年完工。
建设将于2013年开始。其它的入围者有Brooks + Scarpa Architects, Sparano + Mooney Architecture, Will
Bruder + Partners Ltd., and Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects.。
“要在这五家入围单位里面选择是困难的。BIG为新世纪提出了一个荣誉性的标志性建筑,并重新的诠释了城
市的天际线。”评审委员会的Maurice Cox,弗吉尼亚大学设计主任
金博尔艺术中心受到城市发展,文脉以及过去的矿产遗产的启发,积极应和场地,成为一个灵活的,个性
的,激发公共生活的地标建筑。
“BIG面对过去的矿业历史做出了大胆诗意的回应,将展览,教育,活动无缝捆绑在一起。让金博尔艺术中心
具有未来国际声誉的潜质性。” Robin Marrouche,金博尔艺术中心执行董事
80英尺高的金博尔艺术中心耸立在街道上迎接着四面八方而来的游客。底层的画廊顺应街道网络,上方进行
了扭转,直接与邻近的交叉路口呼应。外立面应用了矿业遗址遗产—堆叠的木材元素,内部则是一个开放的
可访问的艺术空间。
“根植于过去的行业结构,适应新文化,生活和休闲公园城市的金博尔艺术中心无疑具有魅力。以前释放烟
雾的烟囱现在可以打出云炮和雪炮,老车库被改建成艺术博物馆,我们寻求自己的设计与过去的联系,并研
究以前老矿山铁路和栈桥的技工技术,用传统的技术和材料完成高度的当代表达。金博尔艺术中心是现在这
个文化繁荣,创意喷薄地区的灯塔。” Bjarke Ingels,BIG创始合伙人
沿着建筑扭曲的外立面是一个楼梯,客人性这里拾阶而上,从宽敞的室内到达外面宽大的屋顶露台,这里能
举办室外展览和活动。从天窗漫进的光线洗亮画廊墙壁。画廊间是餐厅。原有建筑物被改建成为教育空间,
以补充金博尔艺术中心的功能。核心是一个双层高的礼堂和展览空间。暑假可以直接面向街道开放。屋顶配
置了太阳能板和植物,点缀着雕塑。
金博尔艺术中心积极配合当地气候,达到LEED白金等级,最大限度利用自然光,自然通风和雨水回收。大
量的天窗应景光线,降低照明成本,天窗还可操纵以满足自然通风。地热交换器让建筑冬暖夏凉。

BIG + ARCHITECTURAL NEXUS WIN THE ARCHITECTURAL COMPETITION FOR THE KIMBALL ART
CENTER IN UTAH, USA
 
BIG + Architectural Nexus + Dunn Associates + VBFA + Envision Engineering + Big D design the
winning proposal for the renovation and expansion of Kimball Art Center in Park City, projected for
completion by Mid-2015.
 
The Kimball Art Center, home to Sundance House during the Annual Sundance Film Festival, invited an
international group of architects to submit designs for an interior renovation of the existing Kimball Art
Center and the construction of a new building directly adjacent to the original, located centrally in Park
City, Utah. The winning project, announced by The Wall Street Journal this past weekend, was selected
by an official jury while giving voice to the visitors of the Kimball Art Center – including those who recently
attended the ten day Sundance Festival in January. The construction is expected to begin in mid-2013,
with completion by 2015. Other finalists included major U.S based offices, including Brooks + Scarpa
Architects, Sparano + Mooney Architecture, Will Bruder + Partners Ltd., and Tod Williams Billie Tsien
Architects.
 
“It was hard for the jury to choose between the five excellent finalists. BIG won the competition by
proposing an iconic building that honors the spirit of Park City’s past and looks ahead into the 21st
century. BIG’s design boldly reinterprets the Kimball Art Center’s place in the city skyline with this
amazing new structure for the arts." Maurice Cox, Jury Member and architectural educator at the
University of Virginia, former director of Design for the National Endowment for the Arts.
BIG’s design for the new Kimball Art Center, inspired by the urban development of Park City, the Kimball
site, and the city’s mining heritage, envisions the building as an anchor for the street life on Main St. and
as a gateway and landmark for Park City. The new Kimball is designed with the flexibility, character and
personality necessary to become a natural incubator for public life.
 
“BIG built the strongest case for the continuity of Park City’s history—a bold, poetic new landmark to
resurrect the spirit of the Coalition Mine Building that burned down in the 1980s. The design concept
supports our mission to present engaging exhibitions, education, and events, and enhances the natural
flow between the three in a uniquely free-form way. As the Kimball Art Center expands in scope and
reputation, embracing both the local community and a growing group of international visitors and art
collectors, BIG’s design sets a course for the future.” Robin Marrouche, Executive Director, Kimball Art
Center.
 
At 80 feet, the new Kimball Art Center matches the height of the formerly neighboring Coalition Building.
The building footprint and lower gallery sit in relation to Main St. and the city grid, and as the building rises
it turns to greet visitors entering the city via Heber Ave, creating an iconic yet contextual building at the
city’s doorstep. Referencing Park City’s mining heritage, the facade is constructed of massive stacked
timber elements, creating an open publicly accessible space inside.

“The raw charm of Park City and the Kimball Art Center is rooted in a culture of appropriating the
structures of past industry to accommodate spaces for cultural life and leisure. The plumes of smoke from
the chimneys have turned into clouds of snow from the snow cannons. The old garage is now an art
museum.  With our design for the new Kimball we seek to continue this tradition by using the construction
technique of the old mines and the railroad trestles that have marinated for decades in the Great Salt Lake
to create a raw spacious framework for the art and artists of Park City – a very traditional material and
technique deployed to produce a highly contemporary expression. Where the Coalition Building once
stood as a landmark for Park City as a mining town– the new Kimball will be a beacon for Park City today
as a home for an exploding cultural life and a sprawling creative community.” Bjarke Ingels, Founding
Partner, BIG.
 
The twisting facade of the building encloses a continuous spiral staircase, leading the visitors from the
ground floor to the generous roof terrace, which can be used for outdoor exhibitions and events. Skylights
allow light to wash down the gallery walls below. In between the two galleries is a restaurant, which spills
out onto a sculpture garden on the rooftop of the existing, historic Kimball Art Center building.
 
The existing building is converted into an educational hub, complementing the function of the new Art
Center. At its heart is a flexible double height auditorium for screenings and exhibitions. During summer,
the facade towards Heber Ave opens up to the street and exposes the internal activities. The roof of the
existing building is equipped with solar thermal panels concealed by indigenous plants. An outdoor
sculpture garden loops around the perimeter of the roof.
 
The new Kimball Arts Center takes advantage of Park City’s climate, with an objective to meet a LEED
platinum rating by harnessing sources of natural heat, using natural daylight, maximizing ventilation, and
recycling rainwater. Generous skylights and large ribbon windows flood the building with diffused natural
light, greatly reducing energy costs for lighting. Operable skylights trigger natural stack ventilation. A
ground-coupled heat exchanger is drilled deep into the ground in non-built areas. The heat pumps either
extract heat from the circulating water in the winter, or reject heat in the summer.

About Kimball Art Center:
Known as Kimball Corner, the original building on the property operated as a livery stable built to serve
Park City's tiny mining community. In 1929, the site transformed into the Kimball Bros garage and for 43
years served Park City's automotive needs. In 1976, arts enthusiast Bill Kimball and friends transformed
the dilapidated garage into a nonprofit community center for the visual arts. Bill Kimball wanted a gathering
place for the community to enrich their lives and experience the transformative power of the arts. The
Kimball Art Center (KAC) is the heart of Park City's historic and vibrant arts community. It is a non-profit
center for the arts, committed to engaging individuals of all ages in diverse and inspiring experiences
through education, exhibitions and events. For more information, go to www.kimballartcenter.org.
