Conceptual Model 
Miralles Tagliabue - Miralles Tagliabue EMBT 


The painter Zhang Da Qian was born in Neijiang. He is known as the most legendary master of Chinese painting during the 20th century.

The city is promoting it’s self by emphasizing Zhang Da Qian’s art, the idea is: “Da Qian home town, Culture in Neijiang.” The project, Zhang Da Qian museum is the first step. Purpose of the project is to exhibit Zhang Da Qian’s life, achievements in art, and contribution to Chinese and world art history.

On April 2010, Excellence group invited EMBT to design Zhang Da Qian's museum in Neijang city, the painter's hometown.

In 1956 Zhang Da Qian and Pablo Picasso met in Paris, where they exchanged ideas on art and initiated their friendship.
Neijiang city would like to continue this friendship between the two artists, and moreover between the two cities where they were born, Neijing and Málaga.

The design philosophy behind the museum would be to integrate the cultural essence of east and west and to built, expressing the past and the future.

The site is located peak of Dong Tong Lu, Yuan mountain, west of Xi Lin monastery, south of Tuo River. The museum will be the landmark of the city.

The museum will grow from an existing tea-house and will extend its pavilions over and around a garden that moves topographically on different levels, enclosing part of the old trees in its interior.

The motives and gestures extracted from Zhang da Qian's painting will shape the forms of the laminated bamboo ribs that conform the vertical sections, while the interpretation that the Chinese painter did of Picasso face will inform the geometries of the plan. This merging of geometries from Picasso and Zhang Da Qian wants to emphasize their relationship that enhanced the two cities to perpetuate this friendship.
