Text description provided by the architects. The major structure of Tianjin Qiaoyuan Bridge Culture Museum has been completed when Sunlay got involved in the project. By adjustments and modifications on the basis of major structure design, the outline of the building is reformed. The museum is designed as a ‘walking building’ featuring full of changing scenery. The layout and construction of the building conform to the nature of the land, thus reflecting the existing landscape. Visitors can flow freely through the central of steel bridge reaching the museum and the building blends into a woodsy atmosphere. The architect’s respectful and clever use of wrinkled surface gives the building grey space. The design of sixteen structural columns is processed in quantity through multiple ways, which partly improve the performance of the structure and reduce the weight of the structure. The museum represents a focal point adapted to its surrounding contexts, including its broken line structure, enclosed space like u-shape, coffee platform extending from the center to the edge, the penetration and continuation of the interior and exterior framework.

The building wall has been grammaticalized here. Creation of the space inside the building provide for a unique landscape experience. Because of the transparent structure the internal rooms allow for an intuitive feeling. Interior and exterior are contained in scale with its surroundings, connecting the park to form an organic whole.
