Museum Chengdu ,Sichuan, China | Sutherland Hussey
The museum requirements extend to over 70,000m2 of development and will include exhibition space for natural history, history and folk, and chinese shadow play as well as a large area for temporary exhibition.
The new city museum will be the most important cultural building in chengdu and needs to assert itself on the tian fu square against a backdrop of ever-increasing commercial development.
The proposal includes the creation of two pedestrian routes through the site – one taking people from the southwest corner of the site to the centre of the square, the other taking people from the northwest corner of the site to the centre of the square.
