Our Favourites: Three noteworthy museum buildings in China

First, we have an Art museum in Jishou, Central China. Then there is the Changjiang Art Museum, surrounded by the skyscrapers of the metropolis Taiyuan and finally the Ucca Dune Art Museum by Open Architecture, almost hidden below the dunes of Qinhuangdao.
All three skillfully stage their exhibits.

Cultural bridge: Art museum in Jishou

Bridges in China have a long tradition not only as   traffic links but also as social gathering places.   This heritage is revived in the design by the architects at Atelier FCJZ for Jishou Art Museum in central China.
