Yuz Museum Description

Located along the West Bund in Xuhui District, Yuz Museum, Shanghai is a non-profit organization under the umbrella of the Yuz Foundation. The museum will strive to promote the exhibition and development of contemporary art and to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of contemporary art. The space of Shanghai Yuz Museum was once the hangar of Longhua Airport. 

The museum boasts a total area of 9,000 square meters, among which the hangar-converted main gallery alone covers over 3,000sqm. By retaining the unique sense of grandeur of this enormous structure, the space perfectly sets off the magnificence of the installations in YUZ collection. 

 YUZM’s basic design approach is to maintain the historical style of the old hangar, redesigning the space of the building to create a large art exhibition space, and to use verdant trees and a bright, open entry hall to form interplay between old and new architecture. While respecting the history of the facility, they have designed a flat-roofed glass hall that interacts with the clear formal characteristics of the old hangar. This interaction between the two structures is a challenge and an experiment in fusing old and new architecture.
