Zinder Culture Cluster

Performance Stage

The municipality of Tiel is actively boosting the attraction of its city. The qualities of the river Waal will be exploited more fully and the relationship between the city center and the river reinforced. The level of facilities is being raised and access to the city centre will also be improved. Zinder is an important component of these plans. The project is very meticulously embedded between the river and the historic city centre.

The new culture cluster pulsates and stimulates and invites the inhabitants of Tiel and the surrounding area to participate. Music or dance lessons, follow a painting course, borrow books, rehearse with your band and go to a pop concert, it’s all happening in Zinder. 

The plan is carried by the raised culture podium: a new plaza with the volumes of the arts centre (Zinder Education) and the public library on it. The podium exploits the differences in height of the venue, transforming it into an attractive recreational area that will function as an extension to the culture building – blurring the boundaries between inside and outside. The differences in height are transformed into usable spaces and an intimate viewpoint overlooking the river is created. A four-story, underground car park ensures that the former parking area on the Waal can, in future, be used for events. By separating the entrance to the car park from the building and also thereby giving it shape, the city centre gains a new, welcoming entrance.
