Yinchuan Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art (MOCA) by We Ar­chitech Anony­mous (WAA)

MOCA opened in the Ningxia Hui Au­ton­o­mous Re­gion (NHAR) of China with an in­ten­tion to spe­cialise in Chi­nese and Is­lamic art – Yinchuan hav­ing been a stag­ing post on the an­cient Silk Road. But it’s the ar­chi­tec­ture that sur­prises, a flow­ing form said to re­flect the Yel­low River. The building is a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of a stream that also of­fers a bridge be­tween the Arab and Chi­nese worlds – a heady, hand­some mix of ge­o­log­i­cal and geopo­lit­i­cal forces. moca-yinchuan.com O
