From the architect. The museum is sited in an abandoned site within the commercial heart, and the design concept was inspired by the relationship between culture and economy.

cant believe how wrongly people are reading this. The display is articulation of what is in the past, merely a nostalgic presentation. not what the government is trying to do now!
