The Chinese city of Chengdu was building a new museum, so it opened up the design to an international competition. British architecture firm Sutherland Hussey won with this building. The exterior may look ultra-modern, but this City Museum will feature traditional Chinese art like the shadow play and some natural history and folk history. When completed, the museum will form the fourth side to the famous Tian Fu Square.
