Long Museum West Bund
China's largest private art collection now has a roof and walls. The Long Museum West Bund is located at the bank of Huangpu River, Xuhui District, Shanghai, the site of which was used as the wharf for coal transportation. Atelier Deshaus respected this industrial background in their design. With curves and high ceilings, they managed to give the building a more organic feel. This benefits the museum function, because art is not always straightforward, is it? Xia Zhi is the architecture photographer from Beijing who deserves the credit for the nice shots.
