Ceramic Art Avenue Taoxichuan Masterplan / David Chipperfield Architects

Situated close to the city centre, the urban heritage of Jingdezhen includes an extensive area with large factory buildings from the local porcelain production in the middle of the 20th century. In the first project phase, the existing buildings in the western part of the site were refurbished and developed to become a lively and public place within the urban fabric. With new functions such as a museum, porcelain shops, and a ceramics market, the area forms a connection to its industrial past.
