Jingdezhen Imperial Kiln Museum selected by designboom as Top 10 Museums and Cultural Venues of 2020
Jingdezhen Imperial Kiln Museum, designed by Studio Zhu-Pei, is granted one of the "Top 10 Museums and Cultural Venues of 2020" by designboom, the world's first and most popular digital architecture and design magazine. At the end of every year since 2013, designboom has compiled the most talked about projects from the previous 12 months as part of its BIG stories series.
The Imperial Kiln Museum is located in the center of the historical district in Jingdezhen, adjacent to the imperial kiln sites of Ming and Qing Dynasties. As a state-level museum, it is of special significance. The imperial kiln in Jingdezhen, the capital of porcelain, had seen the rise and fall of Chinese ceramic culture for thousands of years. The building of the museum is composed of arched structures with many cross-sections, using both new and old kiln bricks as the main materials, rendering a warm and blurred texture in the interior and exterior spaces.
