The hall of the LAC, is an impressive three-level structure at the back of the square Bernardino Luini, representing the heart of the cultural centre.
The hall of the LAC represents the heart of the cultural centre. On entering the building, visitors find themselves in a spacious 650 m² hall designed as a huge window designed to render the boundary between indoor and outdoor almost imperceptible. One side overlooks the new Piazza and the lake, whilst the other looks out over the outdoor amphitheatre and the park created adjacent to the facility.
The hall is open to visitors, just like any town street, enabling them to cross from one side of the city to the other. This was a deliberate choice, designed to eliminate the sense of separation between the physical spaces and is also an invitation to live LAC just like any other everyday experience.
The hall houses the ticket office, the bookshop and a bar.
