China unveils Floating Museum That Hangs Off The Side Of A Cliff(Photos) by Explorers(m): 2:41pm On Jan 02
The newly unveiled museum is a piece of cutting-edge art itself - literally.

The two-storey glass-walled gallery clings to the side of a 541-foot-tall cliff in a national park in southern China.

Built in a natural dent on top of the cliff face, the building gives the impression as if it has been built into the rock.

The spectacular visual effect has earned the 800-square-metre (8,611 square feet) structure its nickname, the 'floating museum'.



The architect, He Wei, said the curvy glass exterior wall creates the illusion that the building is growing out of the cliff.

The museum is designed by 3andwich Design, a Beijing-based architectural firm led by China-born German-trained He Wei.

The architect said in his mind the gallery, which took a year to build, should be a viewing point with impressive sense of space.

The museum's lounge area (pictured) boasts sleek wooden panels and columns, marble floor lining and tasteful decor.




Users of the meeting rooms would be able to enjoy breath-taking limestone mountains while going through presentations.

When they will know their village people are strong is when an earthquake will happen on the mountain and probably cause land slides.

Then they will know.

By using glass, a light building material in rock, Mr He hopes that the building could create a harmony between a man-made structure and nature.


A stunning drone video on Design Wire shows that the transparent attraction standing above the clouds as it overlooks river valleys.


In an interview with Design Wire, Mr He said buildings connect humans and natural landscape and that he hopes the three elements co-exist in this building.



The transparent attraction stands nearly 550 feet above the ground and overlooks river valleys and limestone hills.

China this, China that, China everywhere ! Good for them. A once impoverished country that opened up four decades ago is today the world's second largest economy. All thanks to visionary leaders it has had. This year, China plans to send a manned satellite to a part of the moon that has never ever been explored before! There's a lot Nigeria can learn from China's development and meteoric rise. Question is: Are our leaders willing to learn?

Wow cool.. If Nigeria hope to achieve anything meaningful, it should find a way to attract most of brains that have left the shores for greener pastures, and the only way of doing that is better pay and security

These guys keep pushing the boundaries of design and innovation. I wonder what Nigeria would've been like if China had colonized us.

China keeps showing to us that ''mosquito eyes'' are far better than ''okpolo eyes'' because ''okpolo eye'' no be open eye. China keeps taking science and technology beyond limits.

What do you expect from right thinking people with high​ grade minds. The reverse is the case over here. No plans, just one way traffic. I weep for this country. Baba God please next time consult me before you transfer me to anywhere specifically Nigeria. I would have preferred Afghanistan self.
