Modern Architecture: China’s Drive-In Car Museum (5 pics)

3GATTI Architecture Studio of Rome and Shanghai have won a competition to design a drive-in automobile museum in Nanjing, China.

An external concentric ramp allows visitors to drive around the exterior of the museum in their own car, past the exhibits, to a roof-top car park. Chief architect Francesco Gatti compares the experience to a "safari" because the visitor, as a motorist, is an exhibit himself.
