Dafen Art Museum - Urbanus

Urbanus’ proposal went beyond the design of a building to include a program of uses for the institution itself. “A typical art museum would be out place,” says Yan Meng, one of three partners at Urbanus.

Urbanus designed a three-story building, in which each floor has a different function. (to find out more..)
