Chinatown Museum Of Modern Art
Located in Chicago’s Ping Tom memorial Park, the proposed building is a center for the community to meet and have access to the modern arts and education. This museum includes art galleries, gift shop and cafe space, lecture hall, art studios, administrative offices, and a central Zen garden. As case studies, Buddhist Temples and Zen gardens have been studied, and their assets have been added to the design of this project. Zen garden as the major point of this project is the idealized landscape, surrounded by the galleries and helps the visitors relax and enjoy the art inside. Buddhist temple, as the symbol of contemplation with their strong geometry have been the other focus in this project.
