Text description provided by the architects. In retrospect, the design of the Modern Art Gallery is a risky endeavor. Industrial civilization acts as a vital part of Shanghai’s own modernity development. With the renewal of urban functions in the post-industrial age, many industrial buildings are facing the destiny of being demolished or transformed in some way, which becomes a meaningful topic.

"Dong Xi" is a fantastic Chinese word, "East & West" in English, which stands for both the positions and the Taoist theory of the Five Elements, including the spatial concept, cultural attributes, and generally refers to a variety of specific or abstract people, things, objects... and so this place “grew.”

Text description provided by the architects. The purpose of the project client is to add a relaxed area to the work environment. What makes us feel interesting behind this statement is that people often intentionally or unintentionally presuppose the two sides antagonism and juxtaposition of the two characteristics of "tense work" and "relaxed mood". The idea of this scheme is not to forcibly let it come from the two element structure of the simple perception difference. On the contrary, we try to distinguish and interlock the two elements between "work" and "rest", and to shape
