Gallery: All Natural Museum of Handcraft Paper in China Doesn’t Use a S...

 
Going so far as to use the paper made in the museum and surrounding village on the interior finish

The museum was built in a field next to Xinzhuang Village at the foot of Yummnan’s Gaoligaong Mountain. There it acts as an extension to the homes, where making paper is a fixture of daily life, creating something of a village-museum. Not only does the museum showcase the history and technique of traditional papermaking, it also incorporates the product into the building.

Other materials used for construction include fir wood, bamboo and volcanic stone – all sourced locally. Plus the building has a relatively tiny footprint since it is both illuminated and ventilated by passive design. We absolutely can’t think of a more lovely place to celebrate a craft that has sustained the Chinese for centuries.
