Overlooking Qianhai Bay on the banks of the Pearl River Delta, and due to open in 2025, the Guoshen Museum, is destined to be China’s National Museum Shenzhen Branch, highlighting the wide-reaching importance of this region of rapid economic development.
Our winning concept for the Guoshen Museum was for a building in the guise of a “giant modern vessel”, a new maritime landmark for the city of Shenzhen. Read more about the concept here.
