Ginkgo Gallery Topping OutClose

MORE is excited to announce that the construction of Ginkgo Gallery has topped out. The private museum is located on an island in a manmade lake in Jiaxing, China. Ginkgo Gallery mixes two traditional museum typologies – the guided museum and the free plan museum – into a scheme with fluid spaces, allowing the visitor to discover and explore.

Inspired by its rural context, we conceived the museum as a village which allows for exploring. The DNA of the typical local village – with its small scale and sophisticated network of spaces that differ in size – is the true concept for this museum.

This ‘museum as village’ mixes two traditional museum typologies: the conventional ‘guided’ routing and the ‘free flow’ plan merge into a building with fluid spaces, where visitors can explore and choose their own route – Schinkel meets Mies!
