Entry Description

Rizhao is the hometown of Samuel Chao Chung Ting, a Nobel laureate in physics. Rizhao Science Museum is a tribute to Mr. Ting pioneering work in discovery of a heavy elementary particle of a new kind. By Exhibition of Mr. Ting’s experimental work, the museum is hoped to awaken the interest of students discovering the unknown world.

The landscape and architectural design are inspired by “Black Hole” and “Starry Sky” in the universe.

The architect wanted to reduce the physicality of the building through the light structure and the selection of reflective materials, creating a cosmic nebula-like image against the seaside night sky.

The ceiling of the façade ramps and the exterior wall of the building are made of reflective metal. By reflecting the surrounding light environment, the boundary between the top and wall is blurred, and the sense of architectural entity disappears at night.

Exterior flexible strands of high-intensity nodes with intelligent RGB light were deployed in the ceiling of ramps by two light directions: upward and downward, which. are used for extraordinary effects controlled through DMX to create diversified scenarios.
