Good Design In China 323

Vanke Experience Centre Vanke Experience Center is located at the east exhibition hall of the Vanke Architecture Research Center at the No. 63 Meilin Road, Futian District, Shenzhen. With high design becoming an increasingly integral part of Vanke's brand and business model, the company wanted a place to show off the innovative architecture of its latest properties and the work of its research group. The designers responded to the client's brief by creating a curvaceous, three-story exhibition structure which takes full account of the sense of "experience" and "interest" of the indoor exhibition space. The fluid form and see-through metal-mesh skin prevent any sense of claustrophobia and inject a sense of playfulness inside the four-story more serious concrete research center. Additionally, it also drove the architects to treat the project as a public sculpture within an airy, park-like setting. The see-through metal-mesh skin, blurred boundary of the different areas, fluid space as well as the vigorous interior display make up this fabulous space.
