Long Museum West Bund by Atelier Deshaus in Shanghai (China)

 
On the banks of the Huangpu River, in Shanghai’s Xuhui district and at the heart of the West Bund Culture Corridor, stands the second site of the Long Museum. A work of the Chinese office Atelier Deshaus, the new Long revolves around a coal hopper unloading bridge built in the 1950s, integrating it into the cultural program. A dialogue is struck between the industrial character of what remains of the old facilities and the fine textures of exposed concrete of the new construction. The 33,000-square-meter complex is defined by the connection, in different directions, of vaulted forms and curved cantilevers. The building’s two upper floors are devoted to contemporary art, while the first of the two basement levels, previously a parking garage, contains the permanent exhibition of artifacts of ancient China and art works of the Republic.
