Bakelit Multi Art Center is a cultural institute in the industrial area of Budapest. This area was originally use in the early 1900’s manufacturing war related products. After the Second World War, the area developed into a spinning factory for textile workers. Since 1999, this industrial area holds a multi-art center for the innovative and creative aspects of fine arts and performing arts. There is rhythm in this building, mimicking the beats of culture and art to be seen in the area. Bakelit M.A.C. aims to build common future of these artists by accommodating them with diverse artistic spaces such as recording studios, rehearsals halls, performance halls and stage, exhibitions, and events rooms. This multi art center gives the opportunity for various artists to learn, create, and perform; it is an environment to think creatively through the arts. This allows the artists to develop personally and artistically in order to give the greatest performance to their audiences. Bakelit Multi Art Center is just that: a multi-faceted center for expression and communication. It nurtures relationships between communities as well as more expansive and differing cultural worlds. Bakelit transforms a former spinner factory into an environment full of potential creativity and beauty. It is a brilliant example of the post-industrial transformation movement that involves repurposing old, abandoned buildings. By recycling the structure, Bakelit makes use of its architecture. The recycling does not stop with the existence of Bakelit in the old factory; the different spaces within the Multi Art Center are constantly recycled. The many rooms in the building vary in size, but they all have one thing in common: they can be used in an unbelievable variety of ways.
