The new Art Museum forms part of the urban development project for a 90-hectare cultural and recreational site in Tianjin, China. The gallery has space for temporary exhibitions and rooms for four permanent exhibitions, namely on Chinese calligraphy, Western art, sculpture, and Modern art. The front of the stone cube with precise indentations and main entrance opens on to the nearby lake. This way, natural and cultural space unite to create an overall experience.
