LAB designed the four pavilions and two centers with the idea of "ties", stringing together the independent sub-districts; at the same time, establishing humanistic ties for the people: destinations for artistic life, tourism, learning and communication; ties for transportation of people from all walks of life: pedestrians, bicycles and motor vehicles for easy access to the functional areas of the site.
LAB的设计源自书法的布局 —— 美术馆位于场地西北角，如启手式的浓重一“点”，笔势意连东侧双馆，与中央的日出雕塑及美术馆南侧的建筑群一起，共同书写了一组东方建筑群。
The design of LAB is based on the layout of calligraphy - the art museum is located in the northwest corner of the site, like a strong "dot" in the form of a starting hand, and the strokes are meant to connect the two pavilions on the east side, together with the sunrise sculpture in the center and the group of buildings on the south side of the museum, together writing a group of oriental architecture.
From the beginning, the anti-center form of the art museum is guided by two sets of arcs, forming a crossover and dividing various activities into three vital centers and seven open spaces. Each of them is given different functional and spatial attributes, interpenetrating and interconnecting.
The roof and walls merge, like a landscape scroll slowly unfolding, and the ancient scroll of the unity of heaven and man leaps onto the paper; the whole volume is plain, intuitively leading visitors to each functional space. The designer abandons excessive carving of forms, enhances echoes with the landscape, and responds to the traditional wisdom of calligraphic framing.
The light transmission system is distributed in an orderly manner in the modulized façade, allowing light to enter the building interior in a natural and rhythmic manner. The panels are practical ventilated facade systems that are energy efficient and provide long-lasting savings in maintenance costs for the user, keeping the building dry and comfortable with a positive impact on the indoor environment. The rain screen blocks some of the solar radiation, creating a continuous insulation effect and improving overall energy efficiency. The air circulation flow in the gap behind the panels can remove rainwater or condensation, increasing heat dissipation and moisture removal performance.
LAB's design combines the flow of activity to create the architectural imagery of a winged pair to more closely connect the two buildings, while retaining the openness and independence of the two buildings, which are seen from all angles as separate monoliths.
LAB not only visually embraces nature, but also incorporates sustainable low carbon concepts throughout the design, maximizing natural light and natural ventilation to reduce carbon emissions.
Within the site is a ring of water around the perimeter of the two buildings that serves as a reflecting pool. At the center of the site, connecting the building entrances and the axis to the park trail is a public plaza and a series of characteristic gardens.
