Architectural firm EMBT from Spain has released their proposal for a Comic and Animation museum in China. In continuation with a longstanding Chinese policy, the museum will be a mixture of tradition and modernity.
Chinese government is trying to interpolate Confucian geometry with a mystical appreciation of nature. The museum also aims to achieve the synthesis of visual and associative narratives.
The museum is specifically designed for kids and their parents, so a free play of ideas is a must.
The central buildings are imagined as different colored, basket like forms. This basket based design has been derived from the everyday, traditional Chinese woven basket.
The different styles, shapes, figures of cartoon and comic characters are merged with the architecture. The museum also consists of multi sensory features, integrating the viewer with the space.
