Marina Abramovic Institute by OMA

Marina Abramović, a Belegrad artist with 30 years of practice in New York, chose a Dutch atelier OMA, to remodel her former theater into an institution for preservation of experimental art and theatre, bearing her name. The original building, located in Hudson, NY, served as a center of Hudson School art movement. Over time it was transformed into a tennis hall, antique warehouse and a marketplace. In 2007 Marina bought the decaying building and intended to turn it into a center for science, technology, and education as a space for workshops, lectures, and festivals. The building is planned to retain its character and most of the changes will happen in the interior. A large hall will become the integral element, housing various cultural events. Visually interconnected library spaces, offices, and numerous lecture halls will be located around the hall.
