The Rockbund Art Museum in Shanghai has been closed since January 6 for renovations of the building.

Over the past nine years, the Rockbund Art Museum has presented more than 30 exhibitions and held various public events. The newly renovated Rockbund Art Museum will celebrate its 10th anniversary in September with a new appearance and refurbished facilities.

Architect Alexis Dornier is the lead designer in remodeling the museum this time. Dornier will redesign the museum's public areas on the first floor, the reading area, the public education area and the museum store. He will also draft new exhibition viewing routes within the museum, providing more diverse viewing possibilities for visitors.

According to Larys Frogier, director of the museum, "The Rockund Art Museum has been curating brilliant tailor-made projects by contemporary artists from China and abroad for 10 years. Artists are overwhelmed by the stunning features of its heritage Art Deco building as well as by the elegant, subtle renovation achieved by David Chipperfield."
