The site is adjacent to the intersection of Guanghuaqiao Road and Guojing Road, and is located at the northwest corner. The site stretches linearly with small depth and elongated shape. When investigatin, we were attracted by the 10 large Camphor trees along the street outside the site, which was a playful beginning for the design.
Camphor is the symbol of the old site, and the exhibition hall is a new urban space.
To create a harmonious relationship between the two is to respect the site, and to dialogue with the city. It is also what we want to express in this project – the meaning of a new art space to the old city symbol.
All started from 10 camphor trees, which are kept intact.
According to the arrangement of the tree rows, a pedestrian entrance and a vehicular entrance are established among them. As the streamlines merge, the main entrance is hidden behind the Camphor trees leading by the walls. .
