Entry Description
Situated on the site of the Imperial Kiln ruins, the Museum pays homage to Chinese handicraft tradition through modern architecture.

Lighting design has followed the principle of extreme simplicity in the pursuit of pervading lighting without presence of fixtures to maintain purity of the space.

The traditional smoke holes for the ancient kilns are adopted in this design to serve as holes for the incoming of light. Some of the holes are openings for penetration of natural lighting. Some of the holes are hidden with artificial light to serve as the basic light for space illumination and the focus light for exhibition.

The layout of lighting holes in the whole vault, its structural design as well as its interface with the architecture are determined through rounds of feasibility studies, simulation and comprehensive consideration of the mock up. Visitors will be immersed in the beauty of the space while forgetting the existence of lamps.

The main exhibition hall is located at the B1 floor. The lighting system is grouped with smoke detectors and other facilities to create a clean and orderly ceiling.
