LAC is a new arts venue designed to host and enhance the wide range of art forms on offer in the city. In addition to playing a key role in the national and international cultural landscape, the Centre aspires to become the pulsating heart of Lugano; a venue which is always open to the City’s residents and visitors.
Born as a location for the sharing and cross-fertilisation of various artistic disciplines, the LAC centre immediately established its open approach to encounters regarding art, artists and the collective thanks to its architectural structure.
The new arts venue plays a key role in the city’s social and economic transformation. Lugano and the LAC – which was not specifically created as an architectural attraction, but as a new district for arts and culture – are engaged in constant dialogue. On this subject, Gianola states that: “It is the city's very strength which enables and empowers LAC. The arts venue project is not predicated on the construction of a prestigious building, but is intended to ensure territorial continuity and a new form of urban development."
