Yu-Hsiu Museum of Art
The site of the museum is situated amongst farmlands owned by local growers, especially grape farmers and is situated beside the mountain known as ninety-nine peaks.
AMBi Studio drew inspirations from design strategies of traditional Chinese gardens, and conceptualised the design of Yu-Hsiu Museum of Arts utilizing traditional sequential design principles such as blocking, leading and revealing. As mentioned by AMBi Studio, “The seemingly random arrangement of the three buildings responds to the configuration of a tribal relationship. The design considers aspects of space, material, structure and construction in order to compose together a harmonious integration of architectural experiences.”
The design of Yu-Hsiu Museum of Art transformed the original contours of the site into an integrative dialogue between art, architecture and landscape. The gallery circulation is designed to encourage dynamic interactions, creating spatially intimate and sometimes experientially surprising moments for the viewer.
The new museum intends to showcase contemporary art with a realism focus and proposes to become the local art village providing further opportunities for young artists in gaining international exposure.
