C+ Architects' LAB Art Museum is a glowing ring in the mountains

s a synonym for non-daily spaces, art museums and visitors are confined to relatively independent spaces, while the design of the LAB Art Museum opens up the architecture, allowing art, nature and people to coexist in the same scene.
– Li Nan

C+ Architects have created art gallery in Wulong, China, that is designed to look like a glowing ring in the mountains.

The LAB Art Museum is set on a 3,000sq m (32,300sq ft) hilltop site that at times is surrounded by clouds.

Its white elliptical form stands out against the surrounding green hills and its main volume is raised up on four functional blocks at ground level that serve variously as offices, a gift shop and an exhibition space.

This can give the sense of the building floating in the air, particularly at night when it is illuminated through the large glass curtain wall façade that wraps its entire structure.

The raised loop design allows visitors to walk continuously around the interior of the building and provides 360-degree views of the surrounding landscape that can be enjoyed concurrently with the artworks on intermittent display walls.

The glazed loop structure also gives visitors the experience of walking among clouds when the weather right.

At the centre of the ring is a central outdoor courtyard that can be entered via the gaps in the building at ground level and from which the sky above is framed by the building.

Li Nan, principle partner of Lab, said: "As a synonym for non-daily spaces, art museums and visitors are confined to relatively independent spaces, while the design of the LAB Art Museum opens up the architecture, allowing art, nature and people to coexist in the same scene."
