Jiangning Imperial Silk Manufacturing Museum is located at the intersection of Taiping South Road and Changjiang Road in Nanjing.
This refurbishing project covers the west wing ofthe ground floor of the museum. This space will later serve the purpose of Main Stores of Nanjing Museum Cultural and Creative Industry and Suhao Silk Gallery.
FANAF intends to transform this space into an extension of the museum. Through the simple assembling of timber framing, FANAF is demonstrating the concept of “superimposition and superposition”, which also happens to be the principle of silk manufacturing. This design provides a unique experience for visitors and customers.
