Appreciation towards Wu Ruohu for providing the following description:
The project is located in the Food Industrial Park of Fengzhen, Ulanqab in Inner-Mongolia. Most local companies in this Food Industrial Park produce mooncakes. The Fengzhen Mooncake, which is a well-known specialty, has been a kind of daily delicacy around the mid-west Inner-Mongolia and Datong in Shanxi Province. The Mooncake Museum was established for the sake of propagating Chinese mooncake culture and popularizing the Fengzhen Mooncake. The funds and opening up of the museum, as well as the entire Industrial Park, were both from the local real estate enterprises. Out of certain reasons, the funds for the construction of the museum continued decreasing. So with the external view and internal construction design unable to be controlled, only the original design intention was generally kept.

The design of this project is based on reality, which has features of low technique, low cost of building and easy construction, so that a brick masonry structure has been decided at the first place, which also accords with the local construction condition. The advantage of solid-walled structure is that it has rather strong shaping ability at space, so the unitization and organization of space become the major discussion topic during designing process. Unitized space is mainly about the structure of exhibition and the characteristic of space. When the entire exhibition hall is unitized, it’s better for people to consider the relationship among each zone, space landscape and light, which brings forth the benefit of a rhythmic sense among different exhibition space.

Walls become volumetric service space; thick walls bring about spatial changes of actuality and illusion, and the transitional feeling among exhibition halls is emphasized at the same time. The connecting approach of corners between adjacent exhibition halls can naturally create a transitional zone and a bright hall. The unfolding of corners can reduce the sense of spatial closure caused by the solid-walled structure. It also strengthens the fluidity and penetrability of space in the exhibition hall, which makes it possible for sight lines from any position to penetrate through several continuous zones and straight to the garden wall.

场地是西高东低的缓坡地，一开始就希望是用一个漂浮的“盒子”来响应坡地的场地问题， 同时悬挑也是为了让“盒子”更有视觉性，遗憾的是最终建造方案因为造价问题取消了悬挑。 “盒子”的院墙是博物馆的第一层立面，它包裹了博物馆，使其与周围的简易厂房有了前后院和通道上的空间过渡。双层界面拒绝了厂房与展厅之间的直接关系，并为展厅创造了内在景观，使其在空间的塑造上变得更为自由。
The yard is a gentle slope land, which is high in the west and low in the east. At the very beginning, it is expected to deal with problems of slope land using a floating “box”, and the suspension is also intended to make the “box” more visualized. Unfortunately, such suspension is removed from the ultimate construction scheme due to the high cost of construction. The garden wall of the “box”, the first vertical plane for the museum, wraps the museum and creates transitional space with surrounding simple-equipped factory buildings in front and back yard as well as in passages. The double-layer plane obstructs the direct relationship between factory buildings and exhibition halls, and creates inner landscape for the exhibition hall, bringing much freedom for the shaping of its space.
