Designed by Waa (We Architech Anonymous), the Art museum will be the first project developed within this new arts district centre. The project is named the yellow river art centre (YRAC) due to its close proximity to the yellow river which has been coined ‘the cradle of Chinese civilization’ by previous generations that helped protect and provide for early settlers. Located within 20km of the city centre, the main function of their design will be to knit subsequent communities together enhancing the well-being of future local social infrastructure.
