BEST of CHINESE ARCHITECTURE 2018 中国的建筑 – BISHAN CULTURAL CENTER / CHONGQING CHINA


One of the biggest Chinese cities with 30
million citizens, Chongqing, is an immense playground for new architecture. On a huge list of newly built projects in
China, here is a new building – Bishan cultural and art center. Three geometric polygonal volumes of the building,
symbolically resemble natural environment of the mountains surrounding Chongqing. These strong architectural forms create open
public spaces around and between them, from which you can access different floors in particular
buildings who serve different functions, but also connect under the public plateau. Facades have exposed triangular construction
on one side, and on the other a texture of tiles, with an effect of soft web. From this contrast between strongness of shapes
and delicacy of surfaces, reflections, open spaces, natural mimicking, the architect Tang
Hua and his associates made an important point on the forefront of contemporary architectural
design, standing in line with some similar buildings of huge dimensions and clean cut
shapes, on the verge of particular Chinese contemporary style.
