Chongwu, built in 1387, has a long history of fame as Town of Stone Sculpture, the best preserved ancient stone city inChina.
It locates about 30 minutes drive away from Quanzhou city of Fujian province. Dingli Art Museum lies beside the Chonghui Street leading to the ancient stone town.
The museum is facing to the south, lies on the center axis. The new reception center was built to west and the existing office building to east was recently renovated.
Three buildings has formed a long rectangular entrance square. The building of art museum looks like many huge stones stacking over the other, silent and generous.
The facade implies the function of the building, meanwhile gives out a kind of natural, simple, but strong vision.
The folding surfaces of stone wall create vivid shadow and the obtuse angle stone makes the corner look more firm and powerful.
The gallery interior space layout is symmetry, there is a round patio in the center, which surrounded by four exhibition rooms on each floor level.
From the terrace on the top, people can enjoy the leisure and overlook the beautiful sea. We choose a kind of common local stone as facade material.
It is widely used as stone curving material, meanwhile as well as the basic construction material of Chongwu ancient city. Many traditional houses are made of stacking stones.
Thus the museum design concept of stacking stones would arise the thinking of relationship between Dingli art museum and local stone tradition. The pure form of stacking stone has a strong contemporary vision as well.

Client Brief The brief was to bring student facilities together under one roof. The multi-functional building includes a venue, pub, learning café, media, prayer, offices, gym, careers, dance studio and social spaces. The brief asked for the "best student building in the UK" and had the aspiration for BREEAM Excellent rating. The design achieved BREEAM Outstanding.
Planning Constraints The site lies within the Strand Conservation Area. The context was complex and the site was restricted by surrounding building lines. Specifications were closely monitored by Westminster planners, who supported the ambition for a contemporary design integrated with its setting. Throughout the building process, the planners maintained a commitment to the enduring quality of carefully crafted construction.
Street Life The site is located at the knuckle-point convergence of narrow streets that characterise theLSE city centre campus. The faceted façade operates with respect to the Rights of Light Envelope and is tailored to lines of sight, to be viewed from street corner perspectives and to make visual connections between internal and external circulation. The brick skin is cut along fold lines to form large areas of glazing, framing views. Analysis of the context has influenced the first principles of a site specific architectural design.
Embodiment The building is designed to embody the dynamic character of a contemporary Student Centre. The complex geometries of the site provided a starting point for a lively arrangement of irregular floor plates, each particular to its function. Space flows freely in plan and section, with stairs turning to create meeting places at every level.
Construction, Colour and Atmosphere London is a city of bricks. The building is clad with bricks, with each brick offset from the next in an open work pattern, creating dappled daylight inside and glowing like a lattice lantern at night. The building has the robust adaptability of a lived-in warehouse, with solid wooden floors underfoot. The structure is a combination of reinforced concrete and steelwork. Steel trusses or ribbed concrete slabs span the big spaces. Circular steel columns prop office floors between the large span volumes and punctuate the open floor plan of the café. Concrete ceilings contribute thermal mass with acoustic clouds suspended to soften the sound. There are no closed-in corridors. Every hallway has daylight and views in at least one direction. Every office workspace has views to the outside world. The basement venue is daylit from clerestory windows.
Inclusive Design The building is designed with accessibility and inclusive design as key considerations. Approaches are step free. Floor plates are flat without steps. Circulation routes are open and legible with clearly identifiable way-finding. Services are located at consistent locations. The central wide stair was carefully designed to comply with standards and details agreed with the approved inspector.
