Goals

The main body of the space follows the architectural structure of the old factory building, and uses the architectural symbols of the broken lines to integrate the building into the interior to form an organic unity.The line-shaped roof makes the space more visually malleable. The light strips above the reception desk follow the roof, as if a huge textile machine and let the space cross through history and lead people to regain the memory of history.
The roof of the art gallery continues the historical elements. The designer hopes to preserve the memory of its history and culture. He wants to translate the yarn elements of the textile machine into a modern design language, combined with the light to present the top and façade design of the space. The light formed from the yarn is related to the cultural context from ancient times to the present, and at the same time gives the space a modern simplicity and order aesthetics. It seems to tell the centuries-old textile culture of Deqing County, and people and space can reunite with the times.
