Jixi Museum

The design of the museum is based on a delicate research of the topography and history of Jixi, a hilly county located at the foot of Mt. Huangshan and famous for its vernacular settlements. A continuous canopy is occupied to cover the entire site. Its profile simulates the undulating feature of the surrounding hills and rivers. Various courts, patios and alleys are carved out within building to maintain the original trees of the site as much as possible. A three-dimensional touring route began with the entry is developed around the courts, steams and lanes to guide visitors to encounter the exhibition halls, undulating roofs and distant hills.
