Museum

The project challenges the conventional role of the museum as an institution only for storing and exhibiting art. As a cultural and urban connector, the museum possesses its own artistic identity and reflects its urban condition. The opening on the front fa├žade allows people from the streets to see the visitors within, viewing them as a part of an exhibition of the city. This project also experiments with the interlocking of curvatures and oblique planes. While striving for a coherent composition among different geometric elements, I am also interested in focusing on the spaces formed through their differences. While the characters in Chinese calligraphy intend to break away from the limitations of paper, the curvy partitions contained within the shell of the museum convey a sense of tension and resistance against its linear confinement.
