Softness of forms, different facades and an explosion of light…
The project is located in Shanghai, China, near Hongqiao Airport and will be an art exhibition center. The building is a monolithic sculptural volume that creates a sense of wholeness. The aim is to create a building with a sculptural volume and a simple function on the inside. The main part of the building is intended for exhibition purposes, but also have various type of other functions such as recreation areas, cafe, a small conference hall, offices, warehouses, etc. The design is extremely harmonious, as there is a direct connection between the geometry of the volume and the interior of the building. The separation of the functional areas in the interior will be achieved with light removable wall partitions. A light show will be presented through the openings in the building at night.
