Ieoh Ming Pei, a famous architect, will design a museum in Nanjing depicting the Palace ruins during the 6 Dynasties in order to show the culture of the 6 Dynasties in Jinling.

According to sources, between 2007 and 2009, archeologists in Nanjing discovered a wall made of rammed earth during the period of the 6 Dynasties in the previous Hanfu Street bus station. The wall, which extends northwards, is about 100 meters long and 25 meters wide, and is very likely to be the eastern outer wall of the Jiankang Palace during the 6 Dynasties.

After negotiations, the company in charge of developing the plot of land has decided to build a museum of the Jiankang Palace ruins during the 6 Dynasties here, and has invested 50 million yuan to invite Pei to design the museum.

Reporters also learned that the museum will be Pei's 75th design.
