Architectural Style
———————
The museum was officially put into service in 2014. The main body adopts the structure system of a frame shear wall and a large-span steel truss. The gray stone facade is calming and atmospheric. The overhead stainless steel ceiling blends into the surrounding scenery. The interior and exterior of the building are filled with irregular straight lines, as if the building is sculpted under a printmaker's knife. It combines the "new" and the "old", "humanity" and "nature", and the dialogue between them makes the connotation of the place even richer.
