Recently, Shanghai organized an international competition for the new Art Museum of Pudong. The site of the project is located at a prominent spot on the tip of Pudong’s Lujiazui CBD area directly below the Oriental Pearl Tower.
Looking across Huangpu River from the Bund, the iconic skyline of Lujiazui has been such a symbolic image of modern Shanghai that any addition or alteration to this image is extremely sensitive. So the site has been deliberately left vacant for years, awaiting a significant cultural institute and meaningful contribution to the urban life at the megapolis.

The competition consisted of two rounds; OPEN along with SANAA, Ateliers Jean Nouvel and David Chipperfield Architects progressed to the second round. Visit OPEN Architecture's profile on Chinese-Architects to see their competition entry for the Pudong Art Museum.
