The most basic meaning of the word “nature” is two-fold. In ancient Greece, “nature” referred to the inherent characteristics of growth and movement in everything. On the other hand, “nature” was regarded by ancient Chinese sages as a “Tao” intrinsically followed by everything, including humans, representing the characteristics grown and developed internally rather than being forced upon externally. Nature stands for the unity of time and space that, by following its own way of evolution, enjoys continuous development, and forms an organic whole based on self-organized evolution. This is a museum specially intended for supplementing the Fangshan Geopark, and its main purpose is to exhibit science and technology knowledge. As our first step of designing, we positioned the museum as a building that should be integrated into nature, express natural beauty based on our “innovative architectural idea” and display natural characteristics through varied architectural space.
