Origin of Cool: China
Here are several photos of the astonishingly cool Museum of Glass in Shanghai, China:
Shanghai-based German architectural firm Logon handled the architecture and exterior of the museum.
COORDINATION ASIA, also based in Shanghai, was in charge of the overall museum concept, art direction, design and supervision of the museum interior.
The museum building is a former glassmaking workshop, one of 30 former bottling-plant structures that the Shanghai Glass Co. still owns.
The black, sleek glass reflects the LED lights and screens positioned throughout the space. This creates a shiny and glittering multi-dimensional feel.
The design of the space and exhibits and the use of various media help create an interactive and participatory museum experience where the visitor is directed through the story of glass.
