Ministry of Design:



Designed as a permanent show gallery and tourist information center for China s largest developer Vanke, MOD s dramatic design for the TRIPLE V GALLERY has become an icon along the Dong Jiang Bay coastline. Despite its obvious sculptural qualities, the building s DNA evolved rationally from a careful analysis of key contextual & programmatic perimeters resulting in the TRIPLE V GALLERY S triangulated floor plan as well as the 3 soaring edges that have come to define its form. The client s program called for 3 main spaces: a tourist information center, a show gallery & a lounge for discussion.Tectonically, the building responds to the coastal setting and is finished in weather-sensitive corten steel panels on its exterior and timber strips on the interior walls and ceiling for a more natural feel.
