CHENGDU - first prize
The concept for the Tianfu Museum of Modern Art in Chengdu takes advantage from the existing situation of the surroundings. The urban idea is to enlarge the existing public space of Tianfu Square and make it climb on the roof of the new building. The new museum is a group of volumes creating a small cultural city. Two main axis cut the site area defining a comfortable pedestrian island where people can walk away from cars. The four museum blocks (restaurant, music auditorium, offices and exhibition) create an arising slope on which people can, seat, play, have a rest, enjoy the view to the central square like in a open public theater. The ending corner of the building replaces the original position of the ancient and forgotten city wall.
