The Nanjing Art Center is located at Nanjing, China.
The design concept originates from a series of sinuous folding walls which twist ninety degrees in section to combine “wall” and “floor” into a single gesture. This process of turning and folding generates rich spatial experiences, connects interior and exterior, and turns the building into a unified and complete form.
The exterior skin of the building is clad with parametrically designed stainless steel panels, while the interior surfaces are defined by a palette of wood and metal that extends the material strategy of the exterior form.
