Jishou Art Museum

Beijing-based firm Atelier FCJZ has designed a bridge complete with its inbuilt art gallery above the Wanrong River in the city of Jishou, China. The river runs through the middle of Jishou and it fulfills the vision to encourage people to engage with art on their daily commute. The bridge provides the path to connect existing urban fabric and the region's traditional covered bridges so as to make it more easily accessible. The bridge in itself has a sloping floor that arcs over the river. It also comprises of stepped podiums which are used by the travellers to stop and rest. The design makes an obvious resemblance to the traditional covered bridges also known as Fengyu Qiao, which are present in the mountainous Xiangxi district in western Hunan where the bridges also had a place for the travellers to stop and rest. In between the two bridges, enclose a hall for temporary exhibitions and the museum's painting gallery also has accommodated a concrete arch which is placed on top of the steel truss.
