The Museum’s theme is “The Many Colors,” starting with the perfect unity of a square, then discovering within it a more complex continuity of shades and tones — each one distinct, but overlapping at the edges to form new, bridging colors. A series of three stacked plateaus create the body of the museum. The flat tops of the plateaus demonstrate the continuity of Yunnan. The reverse surfaces of the plateaus turn up dramatically to reveal a spectrum of vivid, saturated colors that signals the distinctness of the many peoples of Yunnan. Competition entry a collaboration of Aedas New York with Aedas Hong Kong and Aedas Beijing.
