HeShe’s interpretation of white walls as pieces of paper

Appreciations towards HeShe for providing the following description:


Most galleries consist of plain white walls. HeShe’s design approach is to draw inspiration from paper folding techniques, and interpret the white wall as a piece of paper.  The two fundamental folding techniques which evoke two very different moods of light and shadows are crease folding and curve folding. Using the analogy of crease folding in building walls, the edges of the walls are detailed with acute angle, creating pronounced shadows in contrast with the adjacent windows and walls.

在主展区,向内凹的墙壁朝展览空间呈现弯曲,带着曲线的墙面产生出的柔和的光影,为观展者带来更加平和的展出氛围。原有窗户前设计一些能移动白色墙体。 美术馆长能按照主题与艺术展览品来控制天然灯光或者人工照明。空间灯光控制有灵活性, 也增加光与影的层次感。

For the second floor main exhibition area, the concave wall is curved towards the room. This analogy of wall as curved paper creates softer shadows, and consequently a calmer atmosphere for the viewers.  In addition, we designed white sliding walls in front of existing windows.  This gives the curator the flexibility to combine either natural light or artificial light with their art installation, and consequently creating different mood of shadows on the curved wall.

由于画廊的功能介于传统严谨的画廊和可供休憩的咖啡馆之间, 我们怀揣“玩耍”的态度挑选出家具,安排了座位布局与陈列品的摆放。家具挑算也是按照我们的概念想法,带有纸张,折叠和弯曲的构思。

Given that the project lies somewhere in between a quiet composed gallery and a causal cafe, it gives us the freedom to be a bit playful with furniture selection, temporary seating arrangement and display items placement.  When looking for furniture for the multipurpose area, we tried to find chairs and tables that follows the idea of paper, folding and bending.
