Architecture: Hangzhou Music Museum by Steven Holl Architects: “..The new Music Museum is based on the idea of the “Eight Sounds” in traditional Chinese music: silk, bamboo, wood, stone, metal, clay, gourd, and hide. While the exterior of the building is clad in the same wood as the pergolas, the eight volumes are each constructed from one of these eight materials. Each volume contains a chamber where visitors not only hear the music but can experience its production..” Sensibility to physical and cultural context, creative thinking, striking volumes..
