STOA International Architects in collaboration with STOA’s Hangzhou office won the fourth place in design excellence in the deign competition for Shandong’s Science Museum.The main concept for the proposed design was to cluster the main exhibits of the project based on the four elements. By capturing time and space, the essence of the universe, in glass and steel, the proposed design attempted to making science accessible to the general public. The clear glass that encases the great orbital objects represents the infinite universe while makes the interior celebration of science visible from the street. Mario Bolullo as the design architect lead the team that collaborated on this project. Other members of the team were Vahid Vahdat Zad and Mingjing He.
