In 2007 Sutherland Hussey Architects won the competition for the design of the new City Museum for Chengdu, Sichuan, China.
The proposed site for the new Museum (which extends to over 70,000m2) sits along the full extent of the west edge of Tian Fu Square to form one complete edge of the most important public space in the City. The singular facade helps to create a cohesive edge to an otherwise disjointed square.
The proposal includes a monumental opening through the building offering a large covered outdoor space where people can gather and cultural events can take place.
