New Jian Wan Cultural Center

It is built on one of Shanghai’s only remaining wetlands and preserves the surrounding areas’ natural assets. By building a cultural center, CallisonRTKL, A Design Consultancy of Arcadis, was able to help preserve the wetlands and improve quality of life in the region. 

The area's Culture Center, located in a central park, was designed to celebrate and showcase the environmental sensitivity and community-oriented feel of the new town. With 6,000 square meters of exhibition, education, performance, leisure and entertainment facilities across two floors, the culture center provides a fluid interaction between interior and exterior spaces. 

Inspired by a rootstock tangled with pieces of rock, the horizontal building is highly integrated with the landscape and nature. The building encourages and stimulates public access and interactions within its dynamic spaces. Organic and inorganic material palettes contrast to celebrate the fusion of man and his environment.
