Shanghai Astronomy Museum was opened to the public in July, 2021. Its unique trajectory style was inspire by astronomical principles. Concrete walls and steel frames are made into curves, invoking the experience of orbital motion. It is the largest museum worldwide solely dedicated to the study of astronomy.
Designed by Ennead, the monumental new museum creates an immersive experience that places visitors in direct engagement with real astronomical phenomena. Through scale, form, and the manipulation of light, the building heightens awareness of our fundamental relationship to the sun and the earth’s orbital motion.
