China Institute of Building Standard Design & Research
2005 - 2011
The museum’s construction was started in 2008 and completed in 2011. The building is wrapped in polished metal louvers to reflect and dissolve the planned surroundings while filtering solar gain and introducing natural ventilation. The interior is divided into several exhibition halls opening onto a shared public space that runs through the building. The extensive roof glazing introduces cascading into this environment, which is then channeled through the building by the luminescent walls.
