Culture & Arts Center | Changsha | China

Type: museums/cultural buildings
Client: Meixihu Industry Co., Ltd (Changhsa)
Planning: 2011      Completion: -

A new grand urban development unfolds around Meixi Lake incorporating a carefully conceived mix of functions.

In a prime position the Meixi Lake Culture & Arts Center is located, overlooking the lake and the festival island.

The theater and an art gallery are conceived as individual buildings each, yet they form a sculptural unity within the townscape. A shopping mall supports the Culture and Art Center enforcing its architectural standing together with high–rise buildings for hotels and apartments.

The design creates a visual connection and a relationship between the cultural and commercial zone and makes the project a world class known landmark.
