Shenzhen Art Museum und Shenzhen Library

The design consists of three elements, which together form an ensemble: an art museum, a library and archive, and in the middle a public space, the ‘Culture Plaza’. A stone podium some six meters high forms the base of the museum, library, and plaza. The main concept behind the design was to create a space that brings together art, culture, and an urban environment – a space where people and culture are encouraged to interact. The library, whose footprint, like that of the museum, measures 80 x 80 meters, features a four-storey reading room with approx. 1,000 desks and a large skylight that floods it with natural daylight. The archive is located in the podium and on the basement levels.

GFA Museum: approx. 37,200 m²
GFA Library: approx. 36,800 m²
GFA total: approx. 74.000 m²
Competition: 11/2015, 1st prize
