Name Professor Course Date Introduction The ancient artistic works provided a relevance to the culture of that population or the population of certain sects. The culture helped to define the beliefs of certain people and their practices especially during those times that westernization and civilization took place. Some of the ancient artifacts have been lost due to poor structure for conserving them while others have been conserved in museums and other centers; and through which it has brought significant implications to modern way of doing things. Suzhou museum was founded in the year 1960 in Sozhou at the national historic landmark Zhong Wang Fu palace complex. It contains mostly the Chinese cultural relics from the 18th century (Suzhou Museum). In 2006 I.M.Pei who is an international architect constructed a new museum that houses the architecture of Zhong Wang Fu and other Chinese relics. The constructive nature of the museum new Suzhou museum near the Zhong Wang Fu used as an exhibition area. The construction of the museum was influenced by factors from the architectural world since the 18th century to date. The Chinese concept of innovation and creativity structure and composition of the constructions social class of the people and typical Suzhou house were factors that influenced the modern architecture of Suzhou museum. Given the above factors it is clear that the historic culture and artifacts of the Chinese people contributes greatly to modern museum preservation and construction even with the modernization effect.

Discuss in which ways historic museum architecture as it has developed from approximately the 18th century onward is still influential (or not) on the design of contemporary buildings for art museums. Research an art museum building that was completed after the year 2000, is not located in either Europe and North America (Canada, USA, and Mexico). I chose suzhou museum but if another one meets these criteria, thats fine. I found some sources for suzhou museum already: Ivy, R. (2007). I.M. Pei, FAIA, on the Suzhou Museum. Architectural Record, 195(5), 190. Ivy, R. (2007). I.M. Pei returns to his family's hometown in China and designs the Suzhou Museum for a sensitive, historic site. Architectural Record, 195(5), 186. I need: all direct or indirect citations must be referenced in end notes, all sources used must be listed in a bibliography. — A clear explanation of both your hypothesis (against which your papers will be read), and of the structure of your paper (how will your argue your case) in the introductory paragraph; — How clearly the beginning of each paragraph introduces specific topics and themes;— The use of an appropriate structure for comparative essays, either sequential (means progressing from introduction/hypothesis to buildings A, B and C, to the conclusion) or conceptual structure (moving along conceptual points that you wish to make with regard to the buildings that you compare);— Close focus of your selection and discussion of key examples of works of architecture, designs and/or plans for buildings and public spaces, as well as contemporary and later texts;— Comparative reference to art works and buildings, or individual aspects of them, by other artists and architects;— The use of sources other and more specialized than those included in the course reader and in the bibliography;— The existence of arguments and observations other than those presented to you in class meetings and/or the course readings;— An indication of your awareness of how other scholars might have thought about the subject. Thus, careful and complete referencing of your essay is required, including a bibliography of works used and read in preparation of the assignment. — The care with your paper references the names of the architects, the locations of buildings, and the dates for designs and/or construction of buildings you mention in the paper. — The care with which you refer in your text to illustrations provided with your assignment;— reference the sources of illustrations;— correct use of grammar, correct spelling, careful referencing of books, articles, journals, and web sites. Good sources to research an appropriate art museum building are + Architectural Review, a monthly, international journal published in the UK. + Architectural Record, a journal published in the U.S. + AD [Architectural Design], an international journal published in the UK, not to be confused with A.D. [Architectural Digest]! Printed journals offer usually photographs, and drawings and plans. The latter two will be helpful to make arguments for or against any possible relevance of older, European museum buildings.
