Between the Autobahn and the Landscape Park – Bellevue: The Yellow House

Copyright: fattinger, orso, rieper

The next time you spot a bright yellow building while whizzing through Linz on the expressway, you’ll know where it’s at. That’s Bellevue, a cultural venue that will be open until fall to host a wide array of activities including film screenings, dance, cooking and musical events, talk shows, children’s programmes and a weekly Sunday brunch.

Beginning June 25, cultural life in Linz’s Bindermichl and Spallerhof neighbourhoods will revolve around a brand new hub. Bellevue is the name of this temporary architectural landmark, a wooden structure that’s gone up over the last few weeks above the portal of the Bindermichl expressway tunnel. The Yellow House’s target audience includes local residents, passers-by and … well … anyone at all, really!
In addition to a stage and an info kiosk, the facility houses a canteen with a guest garden, bicycle rental infrastructure, a workshop, an exhibition area, a media space and a library. In other words: it’s a real cultural center. Each day of the week, there’ll be a different featured programme theme: Monday: Bellevue Goes to the Movies; Tuesday: Bellevue Tells Stories; Wednesday: Bellevue Plays DJ; Thursday: Bellevue Cooks; Friday: Bellevue Dances; Saturday: Bellevue Resounds. The Sunday brunch series entitled Bellevue Hosts will spotlight Capital of Culture Neighbourhood of the Month projects.
