Museum

YANG HOUSE

Back

The Yang House Museum displays handmade products and materials and explores the methods, techniques and aesthetics of handicrafts in different countries, covering the past, modern and future periods. The exhibition space takes its inspiration from the traditional gardens of Suzhou and is divided into an exhibition hall and a garden display area. The white Y-shaped elements that create the scaffold system are particularly noteworthy. This modern construction provides a distinct contrast to the exhibits shown in the museum.
