A modern museum from a coal-loading point

Long Museum West Bund is located at the bank of Huangpu River, Xuhui District, Shanghai Municipality, on a site which had been used as the wharf for coal transportation. The design of the new museum adopts a cantilever structure featuring an umbrella vault which visually echoes a remaining coal hopper unloading bridge - a symbol of the area’s industrial past.
