Located in Shunde, Guangdong, He Art Museum (HEM) is a family established, non-profit art museum designed by Tadao Ando. The design of HEM’s architecture pursues the philosophy of spatial integration, involving geometrical design elements - square and circle - to create a sense of contrast. Highlighted with the world’s first and only double-helix staircase made with slick concrete and spacious innovative exhibition halls in a circular structure, it hopes to utilize the space to create multi-dimensional cultural and artistic experiences for art enthusiasts and the local community.
