Arquitectura Viva features Zhang Daqian Museum

October 20, 2017

Zhang Daqian Museum, designed by EMBT, is the subject of a detailed building study in the 81 issue of Arquitectura Viva.

The project under construction is a new museum dedicated to Zhang Daqian (1899- 1983), one of the most prominent and soughtafter Chinese artists of the 20th century. The building evokes the painter’s friendship with Pablo Picasso proposing a design that blends the cultural essences of the East and West. Starting out from an existing tea house, the project arranges its pavilions around the garden in a play of topographical adaptation at different levels, and these are materialized by structural ribs with a vertical section inspired in the motifs and forms of the artist’s paintings.
