Appreciation towards ARES Partners for providing the following description:


HOW Art Museum is located in ZhangJiang Hi-Teck Park at Pudong Shanghai. Occupying three levels of the podium floors within the existing HOW Art Hotel building, this 7000sqm Contemporary Art Museum includes a 4200sqm Exhibition space and an about 2800sqm space of supporting service area. The Museum entry hall at the west side of the hotel building is a new addition. To echo with the existing glass curtain wall, this new addition takes on a simple architecture form. The new hall way is a transitional space between the exterior sculpture park and the interior Gallery space as well as a link between the Art Hotel and the Museum. The 22 meter long rectangular form takes one single bend in correspond to the existing podium building shape.

The translucent U Channel glass brings light softly into the reception area during the day and illuminates during the night. In contracts with the light and air translucent glass channel, white enamel metal panel wraps the roof and façade as one stroke. Visually it anchors the form down to the ground. The white enamel metal panels extend into the interior of the reception area to form a coherent pure white space.

穿过门厅长廊, 在经过了一个8米高的挑高空间和一个如同嵌套的“盒体“通道后,空间延伸至展厅。“盒体”的内壁一周均为白色钢板材质,线条简练直挺,给人以视觉与感知的联想,展厅空间为了尽可能的争取空间高度,顶面为开放式框架结构,所有顶部管道及照明支架等视觉可见部分均与墙面一致为白色,在视觉上产生空间的延伸。

After passing through this long and pure entry hall way, you are in an eight meter high vertical space which creates a sense of readiness before start viewing the exhibited art pieces. By entering a formal “white box” adjacent to this vertical space, it remarks a starting point. In order to maximize the ceiling height for the gallery space as well as giving flexibility to art exhibition, an open grid ceiling is introduced.

展厅空间开敞方正,一层展厅地面为硬化水泥,二层与三层展厅地面为木地板,整个美术馆室内材料以白色为主基调,而各种不同材料的白色看似相同却略显现各自不同的特性与质感, 略微的不同丰富了层次但仍然低调不张扬,让观展人在纯粹的空间中更准确、更自由地感知艺术作品。美术馆的三层为昊设计中心,昊图书馆,展厅区域及美术馆办公区。 美术馆的观展人通过HOW艺术商店出口到达另一个白色“盒体”空间来结束整个观展的路径/过程,这个“盒体“与一层起点处的“盒体”遥相呼应。

Hardened concrete flooring material is used for the Ground floor exhibition space and laminated wood flooring is used for the 2nd and 3rd floor Gallery space. The design of the museum interior takes a minimal approach. It allows all art pieces and products to be fully expressed in this space which also encourages an acurate dialogue between art piece and viewers as much as possible. The 3rd floor level houses HOW Art center which includes HOW store, HOW library and a small Gallery space. Another “White box ”insets at the exit point of the HOW Store which marks the end point of the viewing journey.

The design tries to minimize the sense of form but emphasize on detail and preciseness. The now opened HOW Art Museum is the only Private Museum in shanghai which also opens during night time. Together with HOW Art hotel, HOW Art center and HOW Sculpture Park, it soon to be a must see landmark in Pudong Shanghai.
