The future Shenzhen Science & Technology Museum, located within the Guangming Science City, will become a pearl of the Guangzhou–Shenzhen Science Technology Innovation Corridor. The museum will be a key destination to learn and explore the power of science & technology and understand their impact on our life and future. Linked with universities, schools and innovation centres across China, the museum will form the region’s World Class Science City, becoming a landmark institution that will showcase and strengthen Shenzhen’s global position as a leading centre of innovation and technology.
With a total area of approximately 125,000 sq.m, the museum’s U-shaped plan provides intuitive orientation and navigation, guiding visitors through its sequence of interconnecting public spaces, galleries and educational facilities centred around its atrium courtyard; defining a journey of discovery that unites the city and park with the museum’s inspirational exhibitions.
Becoming an important public building for the city and a significant centre for youth education, the Shenzhen Science & Technology Museum is planned as benchmark for sustainability within the region’s civic architecture.
As the museum will be located within Shenzhen’s subtropical climate with a mild winter and warm spring/autumn, the design optimises energy conservation during Shenzhen’s hot, humid summer with the very high thermal insulation performance of its envelope together with high-efficiency glazing, HVAC, lighting and smart building management systems.
With works on site now underway, construction of the Shenzhen Science & Technology Museum is planned for completion in late 2023.
