nanjing china’s newest cultural facility, the ‘nanjing museum of art and architecture’ by steven holl architects is now complete. regarded as the gateway to a new cultural development, the museum explores shifting viewpoints and layers of space reminiscent of spatial compositions seen in traditional chinese paintings.

a single winding passageway is lifted into the air by a two large stilts, unwrapping in a clockwise turning sequence until it stops to focus on the city in the distance. acting as a visual axis to the nearby urban and natural environments, the raised and linear volume creates an intimate gallery space that isolates and controls the attention of the visitor.

a single open stairway provides access to the upper gallery, housed within the off-white corrugated structure. an encircling bamboo-formed concrete wall limits access and shelters the structure, rising and falling as it makes its way around the volume.
