NAMOC by Ateliers Jean Nouvel

Located next to the historic axis of Beijing and symbolically connected to the Forbidden City, the new National Art Museum of China will take its place by its size – 130 000 square meters – and by the importance of its collections – from the Ming Era to today – among the greatest museums of the world.

The NAMOC represents an incredible opportunity for the most ambitious materialization of a place for expression, of communication and attraction, a place that witnesses the vitality of a civilization, the civilization of the greatest people on earth. The museum is a milestone that now establishes architecture as a civilizational medium, as the memorial symbiosis of nature and human expression.

These exceptional conditions are able to elicit this rising attitude, this symbiotic response, and goes beyond being just a traditional competition of established styles. Today, the role of architecture is to catalyze, to precipitate the spirit of a situation should it be individual, plural or civilizational.
