coop himmelb(l)au unveils design for MOCAPE contemporary art museum

 

 

coop himmelb(l)au has designed ‘MOCAPE’, the museum of contemporary art and planning exhibition in shenzhen, china. consisting of two entities, the museum of contemporary art (MOCA) and planning exhibition (PE), the overall complex and modern information center features innovative solutions through environmental building systems and construction concepts. the dynamic structure will attract activity into the centrally located ‘futian cultural center’. the building projects the language of the ongoing masterplan which is currently under development, molding the urban fabric. programmatic areas express themselves as elemental forms from the exterior as well as within internal spaces.
