The Nanjing Sifang Art Museum is set in the wilderness of China and features architecture that is absolutely stunning. Built by Steven Holl Architects, this museum looks like a futuristic piece of art.

The building is surrounded by a rich green landscape and its white coloring stands out against the environment. Parallel rectangular shapes dominate most of the construction and reach out over the landscape. According to Steven Holl Architects, "the museum explores the shifting viewpoints, layers of space, expanses of mist and water, which characterize the deep alternating spatial mysteries of the composition of Chinese painting."

With its various rectangular sections standing out over the terrain, the Nanjing Sifang Art Museum's modern and futuristic design is definitely apparent.
