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.

几千年来,长江塑造了中国博大精深的传统文化,孕育了无数的中华儿女。在武汉的长江文明馆里,我们将述说遥遥五千年长江的文明历史故事。武汉再古代曾经是一个重要的商品交易中心,它与丝绸之路以及海上丝绸之路有着密切的联系。

 

其中一个核心设计概念是,让游客在博物馆里开启一段壮观的水上游览之旅。游客搭乘着小舟,沿着历史的长河,将看到长江的文明史卷缓缓展开。巨大的序厅雕塑象征传统文化和新兴文明在长江的荫庇下得以继承和发展。
