"Blank-leaving" is the most artistic expression in the art of Chinese painting. The geometrical form is the most objective expression in Western logical thinking. The architecture of the muse-um, where we removed the symbols of the Western to give the purest whiteness, connected toge-ther with new corridor by several different geometric buildings, in order to have new conversation in between; indoor the vertical circulation, giving more dimensions of stretching.

The significance of the art museum is to present the art. As a platform for displaying it, our definition of Song Art Museum is an "art container", with art as its mainstay and container as its complement, and in the future it can also easy be duplicated in any other place with it’s own langu-age, we intent to give the architecture and space more possibility.

Song Art Museum transforms everything into geometry, purity, like Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu said, "govern without intervention" from the outside to inner. With its clean existence, any kind of contemporary art is welcome to enter, to vitality showing without scruples. The courtyard surrounded by the pine trees, to give the external vitality of Song Art Museum, the scenery becomes the breath of both inside and outside. The oriental sense also becomes the na-tural rhythm of mutual attraction between traditional and modern architecture.
