To describe this design with the emotional word is "hold mud", rational words is “manifold”. The thinking is a main idea of the designer in recent years, he put forward a new concept of "manifold"--- From first to last,the building is full of movement and has two or more different forms at the different ends, the form is not a result but a process, a continuous flowing and changing physical space, a process from static to dynamic, a temporal spatial evolution process. a body growing process, a non-focus building, a geometrical composition from linear to nonlinear changes with both topology and fractal characteristics.

Physical space of this gallery has ten changes:
1: Mechanics---- the shape from static to dynamic,
2: Differential---- line from straight to curve,
3: Level---- block from large to small,
4: Optics ----color from dark to light,
5: Measurement---- surface layer from thick to thin,
6: Mete-rage---- gap of each face brick from broad to narrow,
7: Physical ----texture from coarse to smooth,
8: Dimension ----space from two-dimensional to three-dimensional,

Science, religion and art three have much in common.

We used to be accustomed to that a building is either square or round \bases on either straight line or curve, this building with both square and round\ straight line and curve is not logical. Curve and linear are no longer in contrast, but changes from the homeomorphism, non homeomorphic homotopy to a series of topological nonlinear transformation.
