Yan ZhenQing museum displays works from the important calligrapher of the same name who lived in Shandong Province in China during the 8th century.
The museum is placed on a series of three terraces. On these plateaus the museum takes on the qualities of a type of traditional Chinese garden known as the scholars’ garden.
The museum is composed of three elements; a border colonnade or langfang, exhibition pavilions, and surrounding gardens.
The pavilions are fluted with varying proportions creating changing rhythms across its facade.
The proposal defines a threshold as a colonnade, or langfang, that makes the museum a distinct entity in the landscape.
