JEAN MARIE TJIBAOU CULTURAL CENTER PDF

It is named in honor of Jean-Marie Tjibaou, who died in while leading a fight for freedom from the French government, and dedicated to exploring the culture of New Caledonia and the South Pacific. Although a wonder of modern architecture and green building innovations, it is also deeply connected with the area, from its exterior of local iroko wood to its utilization of traditional building techniques. The double layered exterior forces warm air up and out of the building. It was also created to be stable in violent winds and earthquakes. The huts of the Jean-Marie Tjibaou Cultural Center contain a center for art, a museum, theatres, and a library. On behalf of our small editorial team, it would mean the world to us.

An understanding of the development of Kanak culture was a vital part of this project — becoming familiar with Kanak history, environment and beliefs made it possible to design a building that would fit within this context.

It is located on a spit of land called the Tina Peninsula, surrounded by water on three sides. The structure and above all, the functionality of New Caledonian huts were reproduced and adapted, architecturally as well as socially. There are ten huts, of three different sizes, from 20 to 28m in height, all interconnected by a footpath. Within the Cultural Center , these huts serve various functions. The first group comprises exhibition spaces, the second series of huts houses research areas, a conference room and a library.

The last series of huts contains studios for music, dance, painting, and sculpture. These buildings have a curved shape that references traditional Kanak constructions but here rather than the traditional woven vegetable fiber, these buildings are made of wooden ribs and slats: traditional exteriors inside of which all the benefits of modern technology are provided.

Low-maintenance, termite-repellent iroko wood was chosen for the project. The buildings have a highly efficient passive ventilation system which eliminated the need for mechanical air conditioning. Thanks to the double outer facade, air circulates freely between the layers of slatted wood.

The angling of the apertures of the external facade was designed to harness the monsoon winds coming in from the sea, the prevailing winds. The flow of air is regulated by adjustable louvers, which open when the wind is light to allow for fresh air, but close when wind speeds pick up. After it was first designed, this unique solution was tested on scale models in a wind tunnel. Chaaya architect in charge with F.

They are cities recognized, popularized, and revitalized by a single foreign intervention of modern architecture. Whether the New Caledonian government ever intended such to bring so much attention to the island became largely irrelevant after they selected Piano as the winner of an invite-only international competition in That it would orchestrate an international talent search to recognize its local culture was a source of irony and criticism, made even more poignant by the historically strained relationship between the Kanaks and the ever-encroaching influence of modernization. The island of Grande Terre, which was colonized by French settlers early in the nineteenth century, had endured nearly two centuries of natural resource exploitation, cultural oppression, and long periods of Kanak enslavement. In the late twentieth century, the island underwent a protracted and varyingly bloody independence movement on behalf of the Kanak people led in part by Jean-Marie Tjibaou, for whom the Center is named, until his assassination in
