Shenzhen Museum of Contemporary Art & Urban Planning by Coop Himmelblau
I wasn’t aware that the building opened end of 2016, it still looks incredibly new and foot traffic was still relatively light over the recent Shenzhen Design week.
Incredibly high ceilings make the exhibition space vast. Possibly the absence of columns also makes for an airy spacey feel one commonly associates with airports.
The taxi drivers call it the “funny looking building”, but it complements the community activities in the neighbourhood. There’s a mall and children’s play centre just next door.architect, architecture, China, contemporary art, coop himmelblau, design, museum, shenzhen, shenzhen design week, urban planning
