We were approached as a British architectural practice as Luxun Park was designed and built in the 1910s by the British in Shanghai and there is an interest in the colonial history of the area from our Chinese client and the supporting local government cultural department.

The program, apart from the gallery itself, includes a 200 seat lecture hall, meeting rooms, book shop and cafe, restoration facilities, storage and archiving space all organised into small pitched roof cellular forms wrapping around courtyards of varying size containing neatly manicured gardens, carp ponds and bamboo forests.

The gallery is also to include a Michelin star restaurant run by a top British chef, looking out over the park and a traditional Chinese garden.

The client is the son of Zhang DaQian’s assistant who was bequeathed the collection which is widely accepted as being one of the most important bodies of his work.

The gallery is designed to BREAM energy standards and is anticipated to start on site in 2014.

Collaboration with GROSSMAX.
