Antuo Hill Museums

Best Architectural Design for Museum

About the project
Antuo Hill had been the site of a large-scale blasting project starting in 1997, with about half of the hill being excavated in order to provide stone for urban reclamation. Now this urban memory is planned to be preserved and elaborated on through the development of a museum cluster that will restore a damaged ecology and bring together more than 10 national and provincial institutions, forming a new cultural highlight for Shenzhen and the greater region.
The Antuo Hill Museums complex is like a small city. Just like art itself, it creates an unknown but tangible spatial framework in the continuous process of pursuing borderless and innovative breakthroughs. Artists exchange and explore here, while citizens can approach and comprehend their works, all within an environment that is intimately tied to nature and history. The functional frame shaped by the combination of architecture and landscape can flexibly respond to the ever-changing needs and interpretations of the future.
