What people are saying:

IM PEI understand the art of the it and how to blend it in because he was born in this city, and his old house (which is a also a UNESCO listed calssical grden) is literally a 5 minutes walk from this museum. He really poured a lot of energy into this project, his last ever project, for his hometown.
