Trusted by Shanghai Glass Co. Ltd, Logon Architecture designed the Shanghai Museum of Glass in Baoshan District, Shanghai, China. Occupying Changjiang West Road, the building was a former glass bottle factory which was transformed into a culture and education site with a modern architectural design.
The Shanghai Museum of Glass
Adapted from two existing buildings, the Shanghai Museum of Glass was previously a glass bottle factory and warehouse. Over the course of years, it was transformed into a two-type museum while still maintaining its original structures. On top of that, the architectural firm also wanted to rediscover the original character of those two buildings.
A Two Type Museum
The Shanghai Museum of Glass is two type museums with a multifunctional design for glass art. Due to the design, the museum has managed to stand out from the crowd.
Meanwhile, the museum provides a glass-themed exhibition, hot glass shows, lectures, libraries, DIY workshop, and other interactive activities. These spaces are designed to captivate and educate a wide range of groups while at the same time offering incentive and value to visit.
One of a Kind Visual Effect
The U shaped glass panels were chosen as the museum’s façade. What makes the façade unique is it showcases glass-related words in different languages which are glowing through its LED backlight. This setup surely creates a one of a kind visual effect that will attract huge crowds.
A New Glass-Themed Creative Park
The project is not going to stop there. The architectural firm will be in charge of handling another project relevant to this building.
The project is in a form of a new glass-themed creative park which contains science and research facilities as well as a business part with commercial facilities. This new creative park will become a new stage in the future generation of Baoshan District.
