Yingliang Stone Natural History Museum is located at the headquarters of a stone manufacturer in Xiamen, a coastal city in Southern China. Over years of stone mining, the manufacturer has established a private archeological team to discover numerous fossils, which they decided to house in a museum. The project transforms the principal of stone dissection, which is specific to stone mining, into a spatial division mechanism, to cut the cubical space accordingly. The project sticks to only one architecture element—the wall—to keep its consistency and authenticity. The museum elevates industry to an “industry and culture” approach.
