Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai, to open in May

After 7 months of restoration and construction works, the Rockbund Art Museum in Shanghai is set to open to the public on 4th May 2010 with an exhibition of works by Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang. An ensemble of historic buildings, now called the Rockbund Project, reflect the diversity of the colonial architecture and forms the Northern part of the Bund, Shanghai’s boulevard on the west bank of the Huangpu river.

By restoring the existing buildings and planning new ones, a team of international architects are attempting to revitalise the Rockbund Project, which is set to accommodate office complexes, retail units and apartments. David Chipperfield Architects has been commissioned with the restoration and conversion of eleven buildings.

The former Royal Asiatic Society (R.A.S.) Building, once China’s first public museum, now houses the Rockbund Art Museum – a museum of contemporary art. Inside the Art Deco style building, the newly created flexible areas enable a range of different presentation concepts and the volumes of the upper floors have been spatially linked through the creation of a new atrium.
