Located in central Shanghai, this multifunctional arts and culture complex is part of the Bund Finance Centre – a joint project between London-based practices Heatherwick Studio and Foster+Partners. Sitting between the old town and the new financial district, this new space combines exhibition and events spaces with a performance venue inspired, according to the architects, “by the open stages of traditional Chinese theatres.” Of most visual interest is the building’s mechanical “moving veil,” captured here by photographer Laurian Ghinitoiu.
