Zài Xīng Tǔ Mù. Sixteen Chinese Museums, Fifteen Chinese Architects

An exhibition by ANCB The Aedes Metropolitan Laboratory in collaboration with Zumtobel

China is an outstanding example of a new ‘museum boom’. The sheer number of new projects is overwhelming, and citizens, the international public as well as visitors wonder about the long-term effects on society and public urban space. The exhibition reflects on the physical and curatorial positioning of museums as drivers of progress within the socio-political and cultural landscape in China today.

AGA Architects have designed a new mixed-use development which is currently under construction in the Hong Xing district of Changsha, China. The project is set to become the first prototype of a combined leisure park and shopping mall in the country. A mix of retail, office, residential and hotel space is interspersed with "joyful" elements such as a sky walking corridor, 360-degree restaurant and a sky pool which overlooks the complex. Integrated landscape and a focus on sustainability transform the center into what the architects call a "green park mall."
