Kevin Daly Architects proposed a design for the Suzhou Science & Technology Museum that would reflect what the gardens in Suzhou have always been: a source of inspiration and enlightenment. Anchoring the northern edge of Shishan Park, the Suzhou Museum of Science and Technology is bound by Jinshan Road, Lion Mountain, a newly reconstructed lake, and the transit plaza. It is an active landscape setting at the intersection of city and nature. KDA's design for the new Museum integrated landscape strategies as the primary means of architectural form making: a large park surface is pressed into piers to provide structural support and zones of planting. The topographic form encourages the park to continue over the entire building surface while also providing views of the surrounding mountain and lake. Seen from above, the dynamic surface is like another planet: expansive, abstract, and geometric, taking on characteristics of planetary craters.
