Binhai Cultural Center blends art into life


Binhai Cultural Center, a 312,000-square-meter landmark located in Tianjin Binhai New Area, instantly went viral online since its establishment on October 1, 2017.

The Cultural Gallery, in the middle of the Binhai Cultural Center, is composed of 28 umbrella-shaped columns and glass. It provides sufficient space for organizing large-scale public events. Underneath it lies the culture block, gathering brands like Tianjin Clay Figurine Zhang to become a traditional culture inheriting platform for craftsmen.

With the theme of "the eye of Binhai", Binhai Library uses transverse metal grids as the external facade to block the direct rays of the sun on books. In the library, the public reading space named "Mountain of the Books" not only links various functional blocks, but also satisfies the reading functions of different readers. At present, the library has shipped 180,000 books, with the subsequent collection of books reaching 1.3 million.

Based on Tianjin Port Free Trade Zone, Binhai Museum will become an art financial trading platform realizing functions such as art ware storage and logistics, exhibition, negotiation and transaction, evaluation services, and financial services.

Being one of the top 10 projects for people's livelihood of Binhai New Area, Binhai Culture Center is designed to blend art into people's life, allowing them to not just read books, watch exhibitions and performances, but also enjoy services such as education and training, dining and entertainment, and health and fitness.
