The Shanghai-based firm 'Archi-Union Architects' recently designed a stunning gallery that boats unusual dimensions. While concrete is not usually thought of as a flexible building material, it can actually be ideal for playing with different shapes and designs. The new art gallery in Shanghai's West Bund district demonstrates just how unique a concrete building can be.
The 'Fu Space' is a non-profit art center that houses various community projects. The gallery itself is more than 350 square meters in size and boasts a unique multi-tired design. The entire structure is made from concrete, which twists and turns at unexpected angles inside and out. The unique structure gives the gallery unusual dimensions that complement the works housed inside.
The inspiring gallery design demonstrates that concrete can be a functional and beautiful building material.
