Wood Block Museum

Design: 2018-2019

The Taowahu Wood Block Museum serves as the exhibition space for a vast, preexisting collection of ancient wood block prints. Originating in China in antiquity as a method of printing on textiles and later paper, the art is a slow and steady process; the spaces of the museum fall in a sequence, various galleries and functions in separate volumetric entities. The circulation throughout the architecture, with direct interaction with the surrounding Suzhou Gardens, establishes a narrative of wood block printing techniques, from process to end product.
