The Barcelona studio EMBT is building a new museum dedicated to Zhang Daqian (1899- 1983), one of the most prominent and soughtafter Chinese artists of the 20th century. To go up in his hometown of Neijiang – in the province of Sichuan, in southwest of the country – the building evokes the painter’s friendship with Pablo Picasso proposing a design that blends the cultural essences of the East and West. Starting out from an existing tea house, the project arranges its pavilions around the garden in a play of topographical adaptation at different levels, and these are materialized by structural ribs with a vertical section inspired in the motifs and forms of the artist’s paintings.

architect, with articles by leading specialists complemented by commentary on works
and projects illustrated in detail. Published bilingually, with Spanish and English

covers current topics, taking stock of recent trends in set sections: cover story,
works and projects, art and culture, books, technique and innovation. From 2013
on, monthly and bilingual, with Spanish and English texts printed side by side.
is the third member of the AV family: a bilingual publication essentially focussed
on design projects (with special attention on competitions and construction details),
heretofore only laterally dealt with in the other two magazines.
