It aims to predict an architectural design trend of the world and introduce the on-going projects through presentation panels, models and videos.
The prototype of the museum is translated from the nests and caves inhabited by the ancient people, and takes the life experience of the prehistoric people of Majiayao who took water from Bamayu ditch to build pottery as the spatial clue. It aims to shape the process of people walking from the square in front of the museum to the ruins site, through the museum and twists and turns to the ruins site with the help of a multi-dimensional and continuous zigzag ramp, This seems to be a reconstruction of the daily life experience of prehistoric people, and a regional practice integrating archaeology, anthropology, climatology and detailed understanding of the site.
