Designed by JJP, the world’s third Red Dot Design Museum opened in Xiamen on November 3rd, 2018, and the founder and CEO of the Red Dot Awards, Professor Dr. Peter Zec, hosted the opening celebration.
This project renovates the vacant Terminal 2 in Gaoqi airport, an important regional aviation hub for China’s southeastern coastal region. This site chronicles the convergence of Eastern and Western cultures, reflecting a rich maritime civilization of historic significance. By using salvaged materials and sustainable design strategies, Terminal 2 will become a place of inspiration for generations to come.
Taking “Differential Time-Lapse” as a design concept, the museum deconstructs different moments of a voyage and adopts the unique attributes of the airport to provide new ways of exhibiting the award-winning designs.
