Today, we want to show you the China Academy of Arts’ Folk Art Museum. Design by the japanese architect Kengo Kuma. The museum is in the city on Hangzhou, in the west cost of China.

The Chinese Academy wants to conservate, to revitalize and to regenerate the arts and the folk in China.

The building has been composed in a form that relates to the region’s geological terrain, and amalgamates with the surrounding green environment. The form has been cleverly furnished with tiles. With the employment of discarded roof tiles, an attempt to provide semblance between the building form and the environment that encompasses it stands triumphantly fulfilled.

To help embed the 5,000-square-metre building in the sloping terrain, Kengo Kuma’s studio, fragmented the museum into separate units that gradually step up towards the forested summit of the hill.

Each section of the building is designed to look like a small house with its own pitched roof. These are all covered in rows of grey tiles, giving the museum a zigzagging roofline.

Es una pasada esta academia, aunque parece un poco tétrica, como si fuera una cárcel o algo así…
