Con­struc­tion work has been com­pleted on the Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art & Plan­ning Ex­hi­bi­tion (MOCAPE), which is part of a masterplan for the new Fu­tian Cul­tural Dis­trict. The project com­bines the Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art and the Plan­ning Ex­hi­bi­tion, and fea­tures a large in­ter­sti­tial space be­tween the two. It boasts col­umn-free and flex­i­ble ex­hi­bi­tion halls with heights rang­ing from six to 17 me­tres, along with a café, book store and mu­seum store. Sus­tain­able de­sign el­e­ments in­clude the use of so­lar and geo­ther­mal en­ergy, along with a ground wa­ter cool­ing sys­tem, while the mu­seum fil­ters day­light for the ex­hi­bi­tion rooms, re­duc­ing the need for ar­ti­fi­cial light­ing.
