The mighty Yangtze River has shaped the cultural traditions, prosperity and ingenuity of Chinese people over millennia. This subject was the focus for a museum design project in the city of Wuhan – an historically significant hub for goods being traded along the Silk Route and a link
to the Maritime Silk Route.


A central concept for the museum was to create an appealing and immersive ride-on boat experience which allowed people to travel on a ‘river’ and through different time periods.
Large lobby sculptures emphasise the dependence of cultural traditions and emerging
civilisation on the power and provision of the Yangtze River.
