The empty infill land and the pink-color neighbor - the museum is located at a site with/out context. As a response, its exterior with color white, gray and blue de-constructs the sweetness of its neighbor; a paragraph of ancient Chinese freeform calligraphy softens the massive exhibition cube, which becomes a unique context of the future neighborhood.
The idea of the interaction between architecture and other extended fields, like installation art, is explored here, as well as the relationship between a quality of dynamic space/place and program of ‘congestion', a face of a city and its ever-changing interior.
