The Zhuhai City Museum comprises a vertical and a horizontal tract which together combine to form a sculptural ensemble. This contrasting duality reflects both the local situation between the mountains and the coast, and as well as the museum program providing a view into the past and the future of the city.

The lighting enhances the building’s sculptural appearance by illuminating the soffits of the external staircase around the vertical tract. Parts of the façade feature permeable elements which are accentuated by carefully integrated lighting. The interior lighting is characterized by seamless integration into the architecture.
