Ningbo Historic Museum designed by Wang Shu of Amateur Architecture Studio, is a massive sculptural form, referencing the nearby mountains, with a fašade formed of salvaged bricks from demolished buildings. The building has been cut through with large voids and chasms, creating a roof-scape with the scale of a traditional village, in a contemporary architectural language. The exhibits are nothing special, but the architecture of the museum is outstanding, representing the apex of Chinese architecture today, driven by a strong sense of history, materiality, as well as being driven by contemporary global trends.
