Yellow River Arts Centre
2012
Yinchuan, China

The scheme located in Yinchuan, Northern China next to the Yellow River Arts Centre is a Boutique Hotel combined with Artists’ Studios and artist-in-residence loggings.
There are two aspects of the program with two different materials - timber for the hotel and loggings and concrete for the artist’s studios.
The hotel and studios are also interlocked, providing glimpses of artist working methods and processes.
The scheme proposes the use of barges which float along the Yellow River and creates new artist colonies along the Yellow River Shoreline.
