Text description provided by the architects. This gallery is adjacent to the central greenland of Jiading new town. The green land has pleasant scenery, and has existed from the beginning of the design. For this reason, the “spiral” type we choose is not only a way to organize the exhibition space; it is also a way to see the view.

Pure round is inserted by a spiral, brings into a primal space with a spiral interior flowing from the public to the private; most importantly, it gives a way to enter the building from the landscape: you can enter the annular interior space directly, or walk along the spiral external stairway to first get onto the higher place of the rooftop, and then go downstairs to the central courtyard to enter the building. The plot, angle and height of the view are continuously transformed, the spatial height is changed, and the introverted and open spaces are being mutually altered by the walking direction as well. A cruise joy is provided, which also can be seen as an abstract way of the Chinese garden. Here, the way to view is also the way to enter the building.
