The Yunshan Art Museum, designed “with love” by CROX and Yuan Gou Design

Chinese architectural firms CROX and Yuan Gou Design have recently completed work on the Yunshan Art Museum, constructed near Simian Mountain, a place of great natural beauty which is imbued with many different legends, all centred on the theme of love. When creating the museum and welcome centre, the architects focused on designing the interiors to echo the various natural elements that characterise the external environment. As such, the resulting rooms have taken on a contemporary and varied style which plays on the colours of the materials used to mark the transition from one zone of the building to the next, fluctuating between the warmth of wood and sterile feel of total white. The museum as a whole has been designed as a single, open-plan space with vast, fluid ‘rooms’ that intersect with one another.
