Commemorative Museum of Mid-east Railway

Study of memorial space through light

Competition | 2013, Manchuria, China

Zalantun, a border city located on the critical edge China and Russia, was once traumatized by the turbulent history of war. Although the Mid-East Railway, which once served as the invasion route, has been decommissioned for decades, the history of pain shall be remembered. The commemorative museum of Mid-east Railway is itself a narrator of the history. The design exercise aims at creating an engaging exhibition experience through introducing elements of local history into the light and space design.
