Description from architects
Link between European and Taiwanese cultures
The Museum is integrated in a three-dimensional crackled landscape that on one hand is inspird by the old tradition of the mosaic technique used in Europe from ancient times and on the otner hand by the delicate Longquao porcelain developed in the region along 1800 years of history.
The project works as a cultural link between two cultures representing the European landscape art and architecture during the Exposition in 2013 and at the same time the rich history of the place in the future museum after the exposition.
The interior of the Ceramic Museum consists of a continuous and irregular space that is inspired by the traditional porcelain developed in Longquan County. Floor, walls and ceiling are fragmented following a pattern of irregular polygons that remind us the characteristic "ice cracks" lines of the Longquan Porcelain (Longquanyao).
The clear colors of the walls and their semi-glossy finishing contrast with the email windows and skylights opened in the walls and ceiiling that allow the natural light to be filtered inside the museum. Lights, shadows and reflections characterize the space with a peculiar atmospheric effect that change dramatically along the day depending of the outer atmospheric conditions.
The objects are exibited in glazed showcases integrated in tne cracked compostion of tne space becoming virtual columns that articulate the circulation of the visitors inside the exhibition space.
Materialization and sustainabIlity
Museum and garden seeks to become an example of sustainable project by reusing and recycling materials such as old ceramic tiles in an artistic way. The materialization of the project experiments with the expressive use of broken pieces of recycled ceramic tiles collected in the area. This strategy characterizes the iconic image of the building by linking the museums identity to the local culture and sustainability principles.
Culture, innovation, art and sustairability are interlinked concepts in the Ceramic Museum, which is inspired by a rich tradition from the past looking, at the same time, for new solutions for a sustainable future.
