After a long wait and several setbacks along the way, Forum Groningen opened in the heart of the Grote Markt, Groningen. An impressive, unique volume that understands the art of fitting in and gives the direct surroundings a new impetus. Inside, a central atrium connects six floors with open spaces and squares, with a panoramic roof as the highlight. It is a cultural warehouse full of books, exhibition spaces, cinemas and restaurants that blurs the traditional boundaries between cultural functions and with a focus on meeting and connecting. Information is provided thematically in the Forum and transcends the various mediums. The building is a kind of life-sized search engine, designed for endless browsing; you will find more than you were looking for.
