Design for Shenzhen Nature Museum, one of the city’s 10 new landmark cultural facilities, was revealed recently, sources from the Shenzhen Municipal Public Works Bureau showed.The project is located at the Yanzi Lake area in Pingshan CBD and will be a large, comprehensive and world-leading museum of natural history.
The design, named Delta, borrows the concept from the river delta formation and the architecture will take the form from river flows, thus creating a dynamic landscape. The natural flowing landscape will usher a vivid ecological system in its architecture and surrounding public space that will include rooftop gardens, terraced wetland islands and winding coastal parks.By blurring the boundary between nature and human, the design sticks to harmony between architecture and landscape and creates an ecological environment that reflects beautiful surroundings around Yanzi Lake.
The rooftop gardens display different stages of life on earth. The rooftop’s recreation area is connected with the landscape parks which are accessible any time of the day. Equipped with interactive facilities, the gardens encourage visitors to explore nature, experience the wonder of life through touch, exhibition and experience.
The design, which advocates the popularization of natural sciences, interprets the laws of natural evolution and shows Shenzhen’s ecology of Shenzhen from a global perspective, according to the bureau.The museum covers a 42,000-square-meter area with a floor area of 100,000 square meters, while its indoor exhibition area is nearly 34,000 square meters.ARTICLE FROM: Eye Shenzhen
