daniel libeskind | zhang zhidong industrial museum underway

located in wuhan, arguably the birthplace of china’s modern steel industry, the zhang zhidong industrial museum by daniel libeskind will both preserve and elevate the famous hanyang ironworks and hanyang arsenal. named after the eminent 19th century qing dynasty politician responsible for the modernization of the chinese army and for creating the model of the nation’s steel industry, the zhang zhidong museum complex will pay homage to the cradle of the city’s iron and steel culture as well as create touristic value to the manufacturing site of the hanyang-made rifle. the expansive plot will be programmatically divided into the modern industrial museum; the heavy industry museum, dedicated to ironworks history, military machinery and transportation; light industrial museum, focussed on water, power, textiles and food processing; and smaller buildings that highlight personnel and the history of chinese industrial workforce.
