The East is Red (and funny too)

Dutch architecture group MVRDV has won the design competition to build the outrageous new home for Hangzhou, China’s much anticipated comic and animation museum. Composed of eight whimsical giant speech bubbles the museum will be an exciting venue uniting the evolving worlds of cartooning, comics, graphic arts and animation.

The eight balloon-like buildings will be connected for a non-stop tour, which will include an international comic book library and three cinemas. Interactive exhibits will allow visitors to create animation, try out blue sceen filmmaking and “act” with holographic characters.

The museum will become the centerpiece for a theme park and entertainment complex.
