Songzhuang Art Museum is the first public art facility built in this well-recognized contemporary Chinese art village 45 minutes drive out of Beijing city. With around 4000 artists living in Songzhuang area by 2008, this Art Museum provides a platform for local community.

The exhibition space is lifted up to create a welcoming horizontal flow with multi-purpose on ground level, to host exhibition, events and casual common area. The second level is rather introversive art space with only sky light or courtyard light. The surrounding landscape does not necessarily intrude; here, art is the view.

Location to be used only as a reference. It could indicate city/country but not exact address. Cite: "Songzhuang Art Museum / DnA" 13 Oct 2009. ArchDaily. Accessed . <http://www.archdaily.com/36950/songzhuang-art-museum-dna/>
