济宁市美术馆是山东省济宁市文化中心四大场馆之一，是著名建筑师西泽立卫在中国设计落地的第一所美术馆，被 designboom 评选为“2019年全球最受瞩目十座博物馆建筑”之一。
Jining Art Museum is one of the four major venues of Jining City Cultural Center in Shandong Province. It is the first art museum designed by famous architect Nishizawa Ryue in China, and was named “Top Ten Most Attention Architecture of Museums in the World in 2019″ by designboom”. The museum respects the opinions of the architects very much and even the logo we designed was sent to Japan for approval by Nishizawa Ryue before final confirmation.
Nishizawa Ryue strives to show openness and freedom in space. He pays his homage to history through 800,000 locally made blue-gray bricks under the lotus leaf-like free-running roof, and responding to it through contemporary materials such as glass curtain walls. Based on this, we believe that “fusion” with architecture is the main theme of signage design, and the following two design principles have been established for guide design:
1. The signage integrates into the building space environment and the finish texture.
2. Under the premise of satisfying the function and not disturbing the building, visitors can enjoy the natural beauty of the building created by more humor.
Nishizawa Ryue said “I can feel SILENCE from the design” after he had seen the signage in Jining Art Museum.
