Suzhou Museum opened in 2006 was designed by I.M. Pei, a Chinese-born American architect. Perhaps due to the special experience of the designer, the buildings finely combined modern material and techniques with traditional Chinese elements.


Geometry, Pattern, Material; Lighting


The most attractive part of the museum building is the roof. Different from a typical and traditional built one, pottery tiles (explanation: in Chinese architecture, roof is covered with groups of tiles, normally made of pottery), which is apparently a symbol of Chinese architecture, were replaced by ([?] replace A ‘with’ B, but if it’s correct to use ‘by’ in passive voice stackexchange) granite slates, on the other hand, combination of the geometric figures such as squares and triangles makes the appearance in the end. Meanwhile, the replacement with (replace A with B = the replacement of A with B [?] wordreference) modern materials solves the problem of lighting in traditional construction. With the remove of the whole pottery tile structure, glass takes the place, properly and occasionally on top, and steel plays the role of support, like the edges between squares and triangles, and the beam (explanation: one of the architectural structure in the building that takes the weight of the roof, and transfers it to pillars below, relieving the pressure from top [?]) as well.


Another usage of geometry is the shape of windows on the gallery wall. Instead of curves (explanation: a line that is not straight) which is commonly used, polygons (explanation: chain of three or more straight lines closing in one loop) are chosen mainly to coordinate the whole design, just like the roof structure mentioned before. Besides, non-subdivision makes it suitable for the modern style.


Colour; Bamboo, Zigzag Bridge, Lotus Pool


Colours chosen for the museum is white and grayish (explanation: light grey), frequently used in Chinese architecture. Bamboo grove, zigzag bridge, lotus pool and interior display provide an atmosphere of Chinese tradition.
