To those related to sustainability, innovation, eco or green building designs (even remotely), the Ningbo History Museum has been the talk of the town this year. Completed in 2008, Chinese architect Wang Shu designed and built the museum, and came first place in the 2012 Pritzker Architecture Prize.
Wang carefully integrated into his powerful design interactions with the environment, efficient use of resources and preserving local artisan skills. What else can we ask for?
Unfortunately, I didn’t bring any wide lens to capture the museum but in any case, I spent too much time grasping at the sight of the masterpiece. We also needed to rush inside to beat the closing time.
Note these following pictures were taken inside the exhibition and were unrelated to Wang Shu.
Ok, next we moved on to please our tummies. Our resort recommended a local restaurant – sure! I was expecting a… you know, a chinese style local restaurant. The restaurant was expectedly, tastefully built.
