Yang Xi is a representative inheritor of national intangible culture (Suzhou jade carving), an expert enjoying special government allowance of the State Council, a senior craftsman of researcher level, a master of Arts and crafts of Jiangsu Province, a master of jade carving of China, the first master of Arts and crafts of Suzhou City, a folk craftsman of Suzhou City, and a representative of Suzhou jade carving technology innovation and exploration. The works “autumn language south of the Jiangnan” and “Lotus phase” have been permanently collected by the British Museum, and the flower of love has been collected by the Chinese Art Museum. As a representative figure of the innovation and exploration of the jade carving technology in today’s Soviet works, his works have a strong sense of the times and a strong sense of modernity. While inheriting the traditional technology and techniques, combining with Chinese painting skills and modern design concepts, he created a new technology of “combination of virtual and real” in the jade carving, enriched the inner charm of the jade carving, and gave the new life to the jade carving in Soviet works. His personality is introverted, low-key and diligent, which is not in line with the impetuous surging of today’s society. He is comfortable outside the free noise and quietly immersed in his jade world. However, he is keen and nimble in the thought of technological innovation. He deliberately innovates and never stops. With his own artistic inspiration and nearly perfect creation, he is leading the pace of Suzhou jade carving industry firmly forward, and will eventually mark the soil of Suzhou jade carving art with his time characteristics and strong colors.
∇ 建築外觀 Architectural appearance
For the sake of preserving the structural integrity of the old buildings and solving the waterproof problem of the external walls of the original buildings, most of the external walls of the buildings are wrapped with white waterproof paint, which makes the buildings with different heights present an integrated visual experience. Mr. Tadao Ando once said, “Light gives beauty drama”. How to use limited windows to introduce more natural light into this main building, which sits east to west, and minimize the sense of occlusion in the original building space is the key point of the connection between the main building and the interior space.
The shape of the entrance is carved into the building at a 30 ° angle to create a form of retreat. The gap between the texture of the wall many-hued and the outdoor environment creates a visual experience that is like mottled time for the viewer.
∇ 一層玉文化展示區 First floor jade culture exhibition area
The “line” formed by jade carvings runs through the whole space, spreading the neat lines at the door into the interior. The lines are vertical and horizontal, quiet and simple. The space color only retains wood color, white color and black color, which turns complexity into simplicity. The space has nothing to do with the hustle and bustle. Light and shadow fall on the section of the wall and flow slowly with time.

If you are generous and have no corner, you will not be able to make a big product. The great sound is hard to hear. The great form has no shape. Designers understand the importance of nature in aesthetics, so try to fully relate space to nature. Both sides of the large floor glass will be outdoor and indoor fusion into a scene.
∇ 庭院 Courtyard
The ground is paved with bricks and stones, and the building line and courtyard line extend to the end of the courtyard. Running water and green scenery, water drop device and swimming fish in the pool, pleasant in motion and stillness, are not interesting.
∇ 玉石展廳Jade exhibition hall
Such as the lines outlined by the brush and the scattered geometry frame the stairs winding to the exhibition hall. Its form is the extension of the first floor exhibition hall. All shape elements are fixed and supported each other in the most simplified way, which looks like they are on the edge of imbalance and perfectly balanced. The contemporary block form echoes the works of Yang Xi with a strong sense of the times. It is not rigid, deliberate and unique.
