OPEN, SANAA, Jean Nouvel & David Chipperfield Shortlisted in Competition for Pudong Art Museum in Shanghai

Four leading architecture firms have been selected as finalists for a new Art Museum of Pudong in Shanghai, China. Located on the tip of Pudong?s Lujiazui Central Business District directly below the Oriental Pearl Tower, the museum site features views across the Huangpu River to the Bund. Because the new building will serve as an important part of the modern Lujiazui skyline, the site had been left deliberately vacant for several years in anticipation of becoming the new home of a significant cultural institute ? with this competition, that void will now be filled with a world-class piece of architecture.

From the Architects:OPEN?s competition entry was highly recognized by the juries for its active intervention to the urban life. The Greater Lujiazui area as the site of the Pudong Art Museum, is a compelling example of the rapid urbanization of China in the past decades. An intense concentration of visual stimuli results in a hyper postcard of Pudong skyline built for admiration across the river from the Bund, yet when examined closely, a fragmented and alienating city is revealed.?As we stand at the beginning of what is arguably a new post-bubble economy era, looking back to the results of such rapid growth, new place-specific strategies are urgently needed to remedy and revive the urban condition.? says Li Hu, the founding partner of OPEN.

OPEN?s design started with an urban concept that proposes the use of natural landscapes to connect and consolidate the existing isolated parklands, cultural facilities, and riverbanks to create an enormous new looped park system. Within this connecting natural landscape, new cultural, leisure and entertainment programs are inserted to complement the existing key nodes. Within the Shanghai metropolis, this parkland will in itself become a new cultural destination, ...
