Nanhai Museum, Foshan
The First Prize of Excellent Engineering Design Award of Guangzhou, 2014
The Project is prominently located at the southern foot of the famous Xiqiao Mt., facing the waters and lying against the mountains. Inspired by such superior natural environment, the crisscross and stacked building volumes jointly present the sculptural building form to harmonize with the natural mountains. The building appears to be a rock extending from the foot of the mountain, or a natural part growing from the towering mountain. The stacked stones and the imagery of tiered mountains also symbolize the long-standing quarrying culture, stimulating memories of the local history and strong recognition of local culture in Nanhai.
