Static exhibits: These are historic exhibits,
reproduction of original objects.

Active exhibits: They are the exhibits which are

static till a visitor activates them into producing
sound and motion. Working models are the best

Interactive exhibits: They are the most advanced
and allow the visitor to activate and give them a
multiple choice of options and then give
various results. The visitor can accommodate with

visitors to experiment.

The doors should be placed in such a way that

visitor coming through will see the full length of

face window, since the visitor will then be dazzled
just as he comes in.

MVRDV China Comic &

Animation Museum
Project brief
Location : Hangzhou, China

Site area : 13.7 hectare

Client : Hangzhou Urban Planning Bureau

Architects : MVRDV

Exhibition Architects : Kossman.deJong

Local Architect : Zhubo Architectural

Engineering Design : Arup

Graphic Design : JongeMeesters

Project description
Site area : 13.7 ha

CCAM area : 30,000 sq.m

Expo building : 25,000 sq.m

Concept and form

By using one of the cartoon's prime characteristics, the speech balloon, the
Cartoon Museum will instantly be recognized as place for cartoons, comics
and animations. It seems obvious but creates a structure both surprising and
humorous, maybe even comedic. It is formed of eight giant balloon-shaped
forms. Each balloon will contain a different function within the museum,
including two exhibition spaces that will display cartoons, comics and
animations. The permanent exhibition space will spiral out of its chamber
and on through the building to connect with three auditoriums and a comic
book library.

The structural concept enhances the sustainable profile of the building: the
aerodynamic design results in even wind pressure and lower need for air-
conditioning. The box in box construction of the bubbles permits different
conditions inside the building and improves the energy efficiency. The CCAM
will consolidate the city's leading position as China's capital of the animation

Functions and circulation

Services such as the lobby, education, three theaters/cinemas, with in total
1111 seats, and a comic book library occupy each their own balloon. If two
balloons touch in the interior a large opening allows access and views in-
between the volumes. The comic strip Library offers views to the outside and
into adjacent balloons.

The program is distributed over eight volumes which are interconnected
allowing for a circular tour of the entire space. The routing permits short or
long visits, visits to the cinema, the temporary exhibition or the roof terrace

The balloon shape allows for versatile exhibitions. The permanent collection
is presented in a chronological spiral whereas the temporary exhibition hall
offers total flexibility. A giant robot is in the center of the permanent
exhibition spiral. One of the balloons is devoted to interactive experience in
which visitors can actively experiment with all sorts of animation techniques
like blue screen, stop motion, drawing, creating emotions etc. The core
attraction of this space is a gigantic 3D zoetrope.

Erick Kristantos proposed Cartoon Museum

Project background

Location : Manhattan, New York

Architect : Erick Kristanto

Award : Honorable mention in the international competition to design a

Museum of Comic . . and Cartoon Art

Concept and form

Erick Kristantos proposal for a comic and cartoon art museum in New York
manages to do something architecture rarely does: Make you laugh.

The project was influenced by the form and properties of speech bubbles,
creating spaces that are unconventional in both shape and organization.

The general volume of the building was first subdivided into storey and
programs after negotiating the appropriate area for each function
represented by bubble quotes, the individual rooms were adjusted in to
modules and arranged to seemingly hover in space on top of the other.
Circulation is mainly driven by a central helix ramp while shortcuts are
provided by short, by-passing slides in between levels views toward the
street and Brooklyn Bridge are established while open roof surfaces are
converted into multi-functional areas.

Space design
Bubble Art Display is a way of presenting comic and cartoon art into an
architectural building as a public display that attracts people with the
intention of promote the art itself. The concept originates from a series of
bubble quotes used in comics, which, in this design, is used to display the
programs of the Museum. The dynamic and playful interior space, created by
the bubble quotes shapes, generates an engaging, fun visitors experience,
which allows them to observe different activities happening at the same
time. Moreover, these bubble quotes are connected by a vertical helix ramp
at the center of the building. And to make the experience even more
amusing, slides are provided as a shortcut from one space to another. With
the unique figure that carries a mission to display as well as promote comic
and cartoon art, this museum will be the new icon for lower east side area of

Functions and circulation
The bubbles come in various shapes and sizes and they pile up, one on top
of the other on Manhattan's Lower East Side, like a monument to the Sunday
funnies. Indoors, they serve as modules for various exhibitions, retail and
other spaces. A main corkscrew stair connects all the floors, or if you want to
take a shortcut, you can slip down a slide thatll launch you from one super
happy fun zone to the next -- from, say, a giant Spiderman balloon to a
clutch of Storm troopers. Every 8-year-old boy hopped up on his Chocolate
Frosted Sugar Bombs has dreamed of a place like this.
