Muxin Art Museum

Design: 2011-2015
Construction: 2012-2015
Area: 6,700 m2

Located in the historical water town of Wuzhen in the northern Zhejiang Province, the Muxin Art Museum is dedicated to artist and writer Mu Xin. Mu Xin was a complex and inspiring figure, not only a celebrated artist of abstract landscapes and paintings but equally accomplished as a scholar, poet and writer. From the urban fabric of the ancient water town of Mu Xin’s childhood, the museum is a landscape of intersecting experiences; a series of architectural concrete volumes relate to the canal and street as singular galleries and program elements invite visitors to wander through.
