Southeastern China city Shenzhen has aligned with Zaha Hadid Architects to complete their Science & Technology Museum in its Guangming Science City. The museum is architecturally designed to echo Shenzhen’s urban circulation routes that boast “solidity and dynamic curvilinear geometries”. The Science & Technology Museum will be just a part of the areas World Class Science City.
The organization will provide resources to educational institutions across China to continue, and to grow Shenzhen’s notoriety as a central area of technological innovation. Zaha Hadid and Shenzhen decided on a U-shaped, 125,000 square foot building with a atrium courtyard surrounded by educational spaces, parks, and galleries.
The aesthetics of the building flow easily from the interior, to the exterior where attention will be placed on blending into the natural surroundings of Guanming Park. As a model for sustainability in the region, The Science & Technology Museum will focus on energy conservation, air quality, wind flow, and use of the natural light with a scheduled completion by Zaha Hadid Architects by 2023.
