In marshy land on the outskirts of Shanghai, a new exhibition gallery takes up two granaries that were in disuse. Added corridors form wings arranged in radical symmetry.
The auxiliary spaces take up two volumes that stretch parallel to the preexisting constructions, but with ends which make the gesture of converging in the void that separates them, completing the axial composition.
Like the original sheds, the facades use a traditional brick bond, while inside, the rhythm of the structural frames is continued by means of concrete arches that result in the formation of a fluid and versatile space.
