Shanghai-based Wutopia Lab recently completed Eight Tenths Garden, an art museum and cultural complex that brings together natural and urban environments.
Conceived as an architectural interpretation of Shanghai experience, the space is a real micro-cultural complex because it offers also food venues, study and chess-playing areas, a library, offices and a bed&breakfast; this abundance of facilities reflects the rich yet restrained nature of the metropolis. The outside space is inspired by ’70s Shanghai park. To maintain harmony, the gardens and building fuse together, uniting the disparate elements; the facades are covered by perforated aluminum. Formerly used as a sales center and now reborn as a more welcoming communal space, Eight Tenths Garden offers the possibility to freely access the spaces to surrounding residents.
