Located in the cultural center of Nanjing, the new Jiangsu Provincial Art Museum is one of the most important exhibition buildings in southeast China. The two intertwined edifices create an interstice which ,as the entrance hall is publicly accessible and, between towering natural stone walls, is lit solely from above. The for the most part sealed travertine stone facade with slender, vertical window slits emphasizes the overall monolithic impression the exhibition building makes.
