Design of Exhibition Space


Construction time: July-November 2022
The Bamboo Culture Museum is located in the Bamboo Industry Demonstration Park of Chishui City, Guizhou Province, China. The demonstration park, with 22,000 square meter, fully displays various ecological bamboo and integrated bamboo in space applications. Among them, the public art installations composed of original bamboo, and door head, porch, bamboo corridor, interactive space constructed by infinite bamboo and public furniture, are displayed in the field of public art. In the museum, the history, context, distribution of bamboo species and the development history of bamboo industry in the world, China and Guizhou are presented to visitors through the forms of sound, light, electricity and multimedia.
The concept of Bamboo Culture Museum is from physical space to cognitive space. That is, we hope to interpret bamboo's inherent spiritual and physical properties and its wide application in space through full creativity; In recreating its unique space, it also recreates for the audience its limitless imagination, wider applications, more possibilities, and its aesthetic blueprint. In the interactive and immersive cultural space, the audience can understand the value of bamboo culture in architecture, home furnishing, public art and daily life.
Following the sound of birds and streams, we enter the stairway space more than ten meters high. The bamboo forest on both sides of the steps is soaring into the sky. Under the interaction of gilt projection, the waterfall made by bamboo strips flies down, reproducing the virtual reality scene by contemporary art.
The original two pillars on the second floor of the museum are designed as bamboo art installations, which symbolize a sacred breathing flower and embody the space and scale, symmetry and balance, cadence and rhythm of the bamboo structure with its unique composition form.
From the beginning and launching of the project to every builder and even every audience, we can truly feel the distinct personality and temperament of bamboo culture here. With culture and art as the guide and innovation and openness as the connotation, Guizhou Bamboo Culture Museum opens a great future for the present and future of bamboo industry.
