Tadao Ando Liangzhu Village Cultural Art Centre

Tadao Ando Liangzhu Village Cultural Art Centre

Having opened in 2016, the Cultural Art Center in Liangzhu Village, designed by legendary Japanese architect Tadao Ando alongside a Culture Museum by David Chipperfield, has now been photographed by Zheng Shi. The images reveal the way that Ando has used concrete and natural light — two common features of his work — for the space.
The center is made of up of three separate “boxes” — one containing a theatre, one with a library and one with a gallery — which are covered and connected by one large roof. All three sections of the building feature floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing light to flood in and allowing views over the surrounding pools and natural scenery.
