An incredible setting that reinvents the artist residence
The idea behind the Weiss Foundation project is to get away from regular sites where artists can be creative and art lovers can see their work. Be Dandy envisaged the game-changing residence alongside classic settings i.e. residences, intense hives of artist activity but with no room for the general public, versus galleries, places where anyone can go but the relationship to the art is often passive and disconnected from the creator.
Be Dandy has thought outside the box to create a symbolic yet physical place and make the Weiss Foundation a space where people can come and go, where people can meet and have a unique artistic experience. It makes the centre an incredible setting where artists can build on their work as well as providing a place where the public can watch creativity in action, meet the artists and soak up their experience.
