”Thanks to Zhuang Xiaowei, the museum manages to unite different worlds and cultures,” explains Tilman Thürmer, the German architect whom Zhuang hired for the interior architecture and the design of the museum. (see also the interview). ”During this German-Chinese project, he put the main focus on inspiring and assisting and gaining a better understanding of each other. Otherwise, we never would have been successful,” Thürmer adds.
Built in an interactive manner, the museum views itself to be a place of experience with its experimental and play stations. The exhibition breaks away from traditional museum concepts and displays glass as a versatile material. It plays witness to our culture and history, a functional material of aesthetic and artistic value, the basis for innovations and a material used in everyday life that brings people together. The museum serves as a good place to meet and attracts a lot of visitors to the exhibit, thanks to the many cultural events and artistic workshops on glass that are held here. <|
