The theme for this art museum which is located at the foot of Laojunshan Mountain, a holy place for Taoism, is light and water. The permeable screen façade is made using locally available tile. An airy screen with an interesting texture was created by fixing the tile that has a natural rough texture made at local workshops using traditional techniques with stainless steel wire.
