At the extension of the axis of the fifth avenue, pier museum becomes the ending of the urban space above the sea. The typology of building expresses the conversion and interaction of spatial energy. Simulating the natural growth, along the view toward the seascape in distance, the structure stretch from the beach end to the sea, converts the city space formed by street to a floating seascape terrace, planar pier evolutes to an organic structure, and provides the free path of promenade above the sea level.
Linear route of pier was converted to a set of dynamical spatial circulation system，connecting all internal spaces at different levels. Twisting volume leads to the conversion of architectural “wall-floor” concept, becomes “no edge” impression of spaces.
Exhibition spaces and commemorative spaces on the ramp like floor are combined to internal circulation system. Cafeteria is located at the height of sea level; give each visitor a continuous visual contact with the seascape surrounding. Private and semi-public spaces were set under the sea level.
