In Process: Tianjin Exploratorium Under Construction
11 January 2016
Construction of a new 400,000-square-foot science and technology museum is currently under way in Tianjin, China. Called the Exploratorium, BTA’s design celebrates the historical and contemporary industrial achievements of the Tianjin Binhai region. Located in a former industrial neighborhood, the museum is a key part of a new cultural district that will include art facilities, theaters, and a city library, the latter designed by the Dutch firm MVRDV. So as to display rockets, helicopters, and other extremely large equipment, the Exploratorium features spectacular conical interior spaces, the largest of which is nearly twice the size of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum rotunda by Frank Lloyd Wright. The Exploratorium will open to the public in mid-2017.
