Yiting Wang, Weijie Hu
This paper analyzes two bidding schemes of the New National Art Museum of China proposed by designers from different countries, namely designers from the Atelier FCJZ Company of China and Jean Nouvel’s team from France. The author explains that the contemporary China urgently needs “silent architecture” with cultural symbols, and points out that the essence of architectural design should be the creation of new possibility by the integration of culture, structure, space and construction, rather than the intentional graphical design based on image accumulation.
