Architectural Design

Aurora Museum is designed by Mr. Tadao Ando, a world-renowned architect. The architecture of the museum is inspired by the jewelry box, which uses the glass curtain to build a concise and clear geometric appearance. In the Huangpu night scenery, the museum is like a deep, quiet and reserved blue jewelry box. Space structure and exhibition display unites cleverly, which demonstrates a strong sense of history and artistry and renders a wonderfully dramatic and penetrating effect. The museum creates another new urban landscape and cultural landmarks for Shanghai.more>>>
