A Museum Dedicated to Porcelain Production

A museum in Jingdezhen, China was designed to commemorate jingdezhen the porcelain manufacturing region in china, also known as the “porcelain capital”. It has been producing Chinese ceramics for at least 1,000 years, and for much of that period Jingdezhen porcelain was the most important and finest quality in China. The city has a well-documented history that stretches back over 2,000 years.

The design of a beautiful edifice that not only stand’s as a monument to the city but mimics traditional Kilns was created by Studio Zhu-Pei a Beijing, China based architectural firm.

the architects cleverly design the building with large courtyards that reveal the old ruins of the original kilns, so as to preserve and demarcate them. The building has two levels: underground and ground levels respectively, gently tucked in underneath towering brick arcs and vaults.
