Both museums are designed as separate entities emphasizing their individual functional and artistic requirements and yet are merged in a monolithic body surrounded by a multifunctional facade. This transparent facade and a sophisticated internal lighting concept allow a deep view into the joint entrance and transitional areas between the buildings. From the inside, visitors are granted an unhindered view onto the city suggesting they are somewhere in a gently shaded outdoor area, an impression enhanced by 6 to 17 meter high, completely open and column-free exhibition areas.
The technical building equipment is designed to reduce the overall need of external energy sources: Pollution free systems and facilities use renewable energy sources through solar and geothermal energy (with a ground water cooling system) and only systems with high energy efficiency have been implemented. The roof of the museum filters daylight for the exhibition rooms, which reduces the need for artificial lighting.
The third exhibition level presents the theme of "City Co-Wish". In a rather abstract way, it deals with ideas and theories concerning all aspects of urban planning and traces an arc from the past to the present and then into the future. The design of the exhibition is reminiscent of building-site scaffolding; it conveys the transformation that Shenzhen is still undergoing. A comparison with other large cities is enabled in the "Future Vision" room. Three-metre-high steles form a skyline of the world's most famous cities: London, Sydney, Paris and New York provide the inspiration.
In the "City Imagination" room, the museum visitors immerse themselves in an abstract light and sound environment. The real-time weather information of Shenzhen, such as wind speed and temperature, is transformed into an art installation through algorithms, triggering the visitors' imagination of a city of the future. In the colourfully designed "kids' area", the very young museum visitors can put their ideas into practice: the result is a city made of building blocks. Special exhibition spaces are dedicated to continuous further development and to the efforts being made to find new and improved approaches to urban planning.
The Shenzhen Lens, the highlight of the exhibition, conceptually connects all three floors of the building and the contents of the different themed areas. Consisting of three "levels", which overlap each other like the sketching paper of an architect, it visualises the planning process itself. The lowest level relates to the first themed area and therefore to the basic structure of the landscape of Shenzhen. The second area shows how the city evolved and was embedded in its natural surroundings. The third level is manifested in the form of numerous screens that are suspended above the lens. Museum visitors can display their wishes for the city of Shenzhen on the screens or follow the streams of movement in the city in real time.
from an environmental standpoint, pollution free systems and facilities use renewable energy sources through solar and geothermal energy (with a ground water cooling system). meanwhile, the roof of the museum filters daylight for exhibition rooms, reducing the need for artificial lighting. MOCAPE is scheduled to complete later in 2016.
Shenzhen Contemporary Art and Urban Planning Museum, located on the east side of the Civic Center in Futian District, Shenzhen, this exhibition hall is full of curves and beauty. After entering the interior, you can feel the ubiquitous flow lines. It uses a lot of reflective glass design. The whole space is very good. The floors are scattered, this exhibition hall itself is an artwork, the exhibition part of urban planning, the context of Shenzhen city development, and the models of many landmark buildings, it is worth seeing.
Shenzhen Museum of Contemporary Art and Planning Exhibition is the last major public building project in Futian Central District.. It lies to the Citizen Center in the south, the Children's Palace in the north and Shenzhen Book Mall in the west. The construction land covers an area of 29,688 square meters, and its construction functions mainly include contemporary art museum, urban planning exhibition hall, public service area and its supporting facilities. 2b1af7f3a8
