Natural History Museum

We conceive The Shenzhen Natural History Museum as a bridge that connects two dimensions of nature: the representation of nature, and the physical natural environment. In a synthesis with the surrounding city, river, and mountains, the project follows a deceptively simple series of generative design operations, turning the architectural typology of the “Museum” into an interactive experience that literally and metaphorically reflects the surrounding city and landscape. At night, the exhibition towers transform into glowing ‘lanterns’.

By creating a physical connection between the individual and the collective, the intimate and monumental, man-made and natural, past and future, this three-dimensional architectural landscape seeks to reinvent the museum typology.
