Notes
Located in Suzhou, Jiangsu, People's Republic of China, the Suzhou Museum is modeled after Prince Zhong's Mansion. Architect I.M. Pei used the traditional whitewashed plaster walls and dark gray clay roofing. Although the museum has the appearance of an ancient Chinese structure, it uses durable modern materials such as steel roof beams.
