The owner hopes that UOB Art Gallery in Shanghai become a major art platform in Asia. Art and commerce, it is like an ideal marriage where chemical reactions with catalysts will occur. Today, in the bustling business district of Lujiazui, Shanghai, UOB wishes to create a permanent independent art space on the ground floor of its headquarters building to present its corporate philosophy, namely, "the way of art is the same with the way of banking". BNJN Design, the designer, compares metaphorically this banking giant’s project to the "Fourth Plinth" in London's Trafalgar Square.
