The Museum of Contemporary Art & Planning Exhibition in the Chinese city of Shenzhen is truly a masterful piece of architectural work in that it manages to embrace a post-modern museum design that is impossible to ignore from the outside, while promising plentiful interior space to enhance visitor experience and engagement.
This museum design revolves around a so-called 'Cloud' section that acts as a visitor hub of sorts. This hub is then connected to the key exhibition halls via a series of ramps and bridges.
The outside of this contemporary art museum and exhibition space features ample use of glazing, while the generous use of glass is designed to amplify the amount of natural light on the inside.
Breathtaking to look at and even more enjoyable to walk around, the Museum of Contemporary Art & Planning Exhibition is a great example of architecture finding a middle ground between functionality and aesthetic appeal.
