Suzhou Musuem. Ieoh Ming Pei. Suzhou (China). 2006

Ieoh Ming Pei,

Suzhou, China,


Built to house bronze and jade from the period from 2500-500 B.C., but also paintings and temporary exhibitions set up thanks to loans from the Shanghai Museum, the Suzhou Art Museum, in the province of Jiangsu, was designed by Ieoh Ming Pei, the architect known in Europe above all for having designed the Louvre Pyramid.

Suzhou Musuem. Ieoh Ming Pei. Suzhou (China). 2006 The project, developed in collaboration with the New York studio Pei Partnership Architects (headed by Ming Pei?s children: Chien Chung and Li Chung) is characterised by the limited height of the various shapes that blend harmoniously with their context, without visually interfering with the natural landscape or with the typical houses that line the canals.
The total area of 15.000 sq m includes 7000 sq m of galleries, a 200-seater auditorium, a bookshop, a library, an area dedicated to research and study and administrative offices.
Old and new, tradition and modernity meet in this project that is a return to tradition for Ming Pei, to memories and to the past of his old home.
