The exhibition hall will cover an area of about 34,900 square meters, with a total construction area of about 90,000 square meters encompassing the exhibition area, the collection preservation and protection area, the education area, the public service area, and the comprehensive business and academic research area.
The winning design for the exhibition hall is the work of Sou Fujimoto Architects and Donghua Chen Studio, which stood out among 47 international top design teams after four rounds of competition.
According to the design scheme, the whole architecture of the exhibition hall can be interpreted as a “garden in a box.” The building’s open and transparent designs echoes the theme of the reform and opening-up exhibition hall.
