the Shanghai Museum of Glass
Located in Shanghai’s Baoshan District, this former glass manufacturing site covers a total area of 29,612sqm including thirty existing buildings varying in age and scale. logon developed the entire 20 year strategic development plan renaming the site to G+ Glass Theme Park (Glass, Art, Research and Technology Park). Phase one includes the Shanghai Museum of Glass (SHMOG) and a hot glass show covering a total site area of 5,785sqm.

The decision was made to design a glass museum in phase one. As the site is not well known due to the projects’ inconvenient location, a ‘Loss Leader’ status for the first phase was decided. This business concept was chosen as the project needed a way to build brand awareness of the site and value of the surrounding land; at the same time add value to the Baoshan district and community, thus the Shanghai Glass of Museum concept was realized. Following phases of G+ Glass Theme Park include; a sculpture yard in phase two, a science park in phase three and a business park in phase four all supported by commercial facilities planned to be complete by 2018.

The Shanghai Museum of Glass grand opening took place on May 18th 2011, to read more click here >>
