7. Gongwang Art Museum, Hangzhou
The Gongwang Art Museum is one of the most recent designs of famed Chinese architect Wang Shu, who became the first Chinese to win the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2012. The museum is erected along rivers in the Fuchun Mountains in East China's Fuyang, Hangzhou city, where legendary painter Huang Gongwang (1269 -1354), of the Yuan Dynasty, lived and finished his masterpiece scroll painting Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains.
Lines of the museum's roofs echo the ridges of mountains in the back, forming a harmonious picture that seems to recreate the beauty of the ancient scroll painting.
Open hours: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm (closed on Mondays)
Address: 159 Riverside West Avenue, Fuchun, Fuyang district, Hangzhou city, Zhejiang province.
