▲Super high-rise special exhibition hall provides a shocking exhibition effect
The special exhibition hall in the stone group is the finishing touch of the whole museum. On the natural green covered roof, "water falls and rocks emerge". The diversity of natural stone forms provides a flexible and shocking exhibition space effect for the interior architectural space. The floor height is 30 meters, and there is an exhibition area of 3000 square meters in horizontal direction. Natural light penetrates the room in half hidden and half solid stones.

Shared education area
Across two floors, combining commercial and catering facilities
The education area spans two floors, connecting the entrance square on the first floor and the bay passage. The public spaces of the two underground pavilions are connected from north to south. The architects make full use of the large-scale space under the green slope, and invigorate the pavilions with a combination of commercial and catering services.

Multifunctional public space
The multi-functional public space connects the exhibition halls in series, and the core activity area is the central square, where 10000 people can hold large-scale activities. The mirror pool reflects the urban buildings and makes people linger; the music fountain adds the festival atmosphere, the stage in the center of the pool becomes the best seaside theater, and the public space for art installation and sculpture exhibition can be used to hold international art festivals and exchange exhibitions.

The layout of Shenzhen Bay cultural square extends the city's central axis to the seaside, and Dengliang Road, the city's main road, partially sinks, connects Shenzhen Talent Park, forming a continuous open space. The public space will be built into the "separate body" of the city, so that people can experience the nourishment of culture and art from different perspectives, and experience the integration of urban life into nature. This huge urban public space will be the "guest hall" full of natural atmosphere in Shenzhen in the future.
