WHERE TO UNWIND Sifang Art Museum
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.
