The proposed design organizes the program into two separate structures in accordance to axial site conditions and programmatic requirements. Although two separate buildings, they are seen as a unified body through the poetic design of the skin. The project finds inspiration from the rugged mountain landscapes, the natural elements, and the provincial artwork – silk painting and wood carving – unique of Anhui Province.

The museum complex aims to achieve different functions such as collection, research, exhibition, education, communication, services, features; it focuses on collections. Exhibition reflects the history of art development in Anhui province and outside through artists’ works of art, literature, etc. The proposal pays special attention to spaces’ distribution and is designed with the aim of holding international art activities.
