Approach Architecture prepare to complete the Iberia Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing, China 

Iberia Center for Contemporary Art is a re-development project located in the 798 art district, Beijing. The original site was composed of a group of industrial buildings, the largest of which is around 1000 sq m area with a ceiling height of 8 to 11m.

The concept of the re-development is to convert these separated buildings into an integrated art exhibition space while keeping the industrial appearance as much as possible. A 50m-long brick wall was introduced to the street interface in order to join the 3 original individual buildings into one single continuing façade. The new façade, however, does not completely replace the original, rather, interacting with it using shape and tectonic concepts.

The interior wall was preserved while a few new function boxes were inserted into the lofty space. As well as exhibition space, it has offices, library, auditorium, café, art shop, and more.
