Changzhi Planning Exhibition Hall / Khoury Levit Fong

The Planning Exhibition Hall by Khoury Levit Fong is a new urban institution with a particular spatial constitution and purpose. While most are based on familiar building precedents, such as museums or convention halls, they believe that the unique dedications of this institution demands a formal and typological invention: an ocular device or camera transformed into a building. So they place the large-scale city model (1:600) on a plinth that seamlessly extends the public realm into the building by sloping up from the street. More images and architects’ description after the break.
