MUSEUM OF URBANISM, URBAN CONSTELLATION
Hangzhou, China (2012 - )
Museoplan won the invited competition for the Exhibition Design of the new Museum of Urbanism, the anchor institution of the Urban Constellation. The 7,000 square meter proposal creates six distinct sections tracing the formal and historical development of cities in a wide variety of media and presentation methods. Individual sections include a time-line of global urbanism; a presentation of environmental challenges and futures for contemporary cities; a changing gallery of world cities and a special section on Hangzhou. The general focus of the entire exhibition is on cities as generators of culture, responding to the theme proposed for the Urban Constellation: Better Cities, Better Life. Museoplan is responsible for the design of both the content of the museum and its presentation.
