The Italian practice 3Gatti won the competition for a car museum in the southern Chinese city of Nanjing.
The museum is articulated in two concentric ramps, which formally consist of a single surface folded up spirally. The “wrinkled” surface of the exhibition space enables the visitors different views of the exposed cars.

“The design of the building is dedicated to the automobile, where the automobile is also the vehicle to visit the space.
You visit the first external ramp of the museum with your own private car, like a safari, you park your car on the roof and visit by foot the internal ramp going down.
The building could seem to appear as a urban car exhibitor, with its corners and angles filled with tempting shining exposed automobiles”, explains Francesco Gatti.
