WHERE TO UN­WIND Si­fang Art Mu­seum

Business Traveler (USA) - - INTERNATIONAL DESTINATIONS -

Lo­cated in park­land out­side Nan­jing that has been set aside as a nat­u­ral space to cre­ate bold con­tem­po­rary art and ar­chi­tec­ture, the mu­seum is a dra­matic piece of mod­ern build­ing de­sign. Cre­ated by NewYork-based Steven Holl, it took more than ten years to com­plete and was inspired by the“deep al­ter­nat­ing spa­tial mys­ter­ies of the com­po­si­tion of Chi­nese paint­ing”. In­side is a di­verse col­lec­tion of Chi­nese and in­ter­na­tional art, and the park also fea­tures a 65-room bou­tique ho­tel de­signed by Liu Ji­akun and Gary Chang, and a con­fer­ence cen­ter cre­ated by Arata Isozaki. Open Wed­nes­day to Sun­day, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM at 9 Zhenqi Road, Pukou Dis­trict. Tel: +86 25 6819 0784.Visit sifan­gart­mu­seum.org.
