Shanhaiguan Great Wall Museum

Designed with traditional Chinese form and symmetrical layout, the former museum is sited in the buffer zone of the protecting plan,50maway from the Great Wall. Within the symmetrical courtyard, the new built part is defined as a humble structure facing the Great Wall. a series of straight “walls” acts as boundary of pitch roofs on both sides of the existing building, emphasizing the original axis with an exterior palette of similar materials and colors.
