Wuxi Hongshan Site Museum

The museum houses tomb ruins with a history more than 2000 years and some research and exhibit rooms. According to the fabric of background fields, a series of parallel rectangles are placed randomly. Rammed earth walls and greened roofs make them being parts of the environment. Only the pitched roofs on the central axis, which are remolded from the roofs of the vernacular residence, are emphasized as leading actors that generate a feature mixing the roughness of ancient architecture and the pureness of local villages.
