The National Art Museum of China has been proposed by Jean Nouvel, with designs that are distinct and memorable.

DesignBoom states that "across its 30,000 square meter footprint, the museum houses a range of permanent and temporary galleries, research and education centers and an auditorium." The look of the museum is intriguing because it's slightly raised above the ground. Moreover, the building is located nearby to the Forbidden City in Beijing, and houses a range of materials that were once kept and used within this historic section of the city. The museum has different halls dedicated to the various seasons, with the autumn hall taking on an array of colors, and the summer hall exuding a more bronzed look.

Hopefully this design by Jean Nouvel for the National Art Museum of China will go forward.
