Uq1Mf1D9hRdTvn37zO2l_fullThe architects from Tongji University in China were empowered by the government to build a museum for people to always remember that there can be no power against the ruthless nature. With a magnitude of 7.9 on the Richter scale, the earthquake destroyed everything in its path.

Although the architecture of the building inevitably reminds its visitors about the most unpleasant things and also about the magnitude of the nature’s unpredictability, experts in the field were able to offer its viewers an incredible sight. Designed by Cai Yongjie, the Wenchuan Earthquake Memorial Museum takes the form of a ruptured landscape with large subterranean buildings that are topped with green roofs. Seen from above it offers the image of a land cracked and destroyed by the underground tectonic plates, but the beautiful location is truly worth visiting.

The entrance to the museum is marked by a public square and a small tower. Young trees have been planted, which, alongside the rest of the site, will continue to grow and evolve over time. The lush landscape is strongly connected with the built environment. The museum is opened to the public and can be visited every day of the week.
