Hongkun Museum of Fine Arts in Chaoyang District, Beijing by penda

Located on the eastern 3rd ring road in Beijing, the white exterior of the Hongkun Art Gallery works a sculptural focal point for the area. Entering the gallery through an opening in the  monolithic facade, the arch-like curves continue to the interior and gently merge into a clean white space for exhibiting the artworks. The open areas in the gallery offer a wide space for themed exhibition, while the gently curved entrance part draws people into the space and guides them naturally further into the gallery.

Article source: PUBLIC

At the main entrance to the UBC campus along University Boulevard are two strategic insertions into the transit infrastructure that provide covered shelter for the trolley-bus loop. The transit shelters act as a conceptual extension of the nearby line of Katsura trees. Slender steel columns are arranged in a staggered line and hold up an over-sized cellular wood structure clad in glass.

We piled up pieces of wooden panels to build the interior like topography. Various kinds of food-related items are laid out on this wooden ground. We expected that the chemistry would be just right for eating and the wooden stratum.

Layered configuration has also been designed for V&A at Dundee. This lounge is in a way like a nesting inside V&A.

We have a long relationship with the Client. The project we did for them in 2001 is next to this house where we divided a bungalow plot into two separate but identical houses which won the prestigious Singapore Institute of Architects’ Design Award in 2004. That was ten years ago and recently they acquired the plot next door with the intention of building another home so altogether they have three houses for themselves and their two grown up sons and their future families.
