Laying of the foundation stone for Shenzhen Art Museum New Venue and Shenzhen Second Library in China

At the invitation of the Shenzhen Municipality Bureau of Public Works as the developer, a ceremony marking the laying of the foundation stone for Shenzhen Art Museum New Venue and Shenzhen Second Library was held on January 17, 2020 in Shenzhen. The area for development measures 250 x 100 meters and the design in question was the winning entry in an international competition held in 2015. Following a change in the city council it was fundamentally revised. The cultural complex, which has a gross surface area of approx. 138,000 sq. m., is made up of three elements that together form an ensemble: an art museum, a library and archive, and in the middle of them the “Culture Plaza’. A podium, staggered at the top, forms the base of the library, museum and plaza and gives each of the facilities clearly allocated, attractive outdoor spaces. The aim was to create a public space that brings together art, culture, and an urban environment to form a venue where people and culture are encouraged to interact. The design of the museum and library has already been awarded the Shenzhen Architecture Design Prize.
