Around two dozen of the greatest and biggest names in international and Chinese architecture were welcomed to the bamboo-clad patch of mountain on the borders of the ancient Chinese capital of Nanjing in 2003.

New York architect Steven Holl, the U.K. based David Adjaye, Chinese Pritzker prize winner Wang Shu and dissident artist Ai Weiwei are among the biggest names who were given chances to outline one of 20 structures inside of the extraordinary scene to a great extent free from any annoying customer constrictions.

The project is presently called the Sifang Art Collective. It was considered and bankrolled by an effective businessperson, Lu Jun, and his son Lu Xun who is an art collector.

Worried at the way developers were changing the substance of Chinese urban areas by scruffy and dull structural planning, they needed to think outside the box of China's rush to urbanize and permit individuals to encounter the absolute best of contemporary architecture, art and design.

Aside from its name as the Oscars for museums, Sifang Art Museum is also known for the Leading Culure Destinations 2015 grants.

Such a daring plan in any country would likely have its just portion of setbacks.

The difficulties were intense in China, wherein private exhibition halls are moderately new and don't fit the bill for government provision or funding.

In 2003, the museum was introduced to the public. Stated on the Wall Street Journal report on the same year, at least $164 million has been capitalized.  

Zhou Qi, a Nanjing based planner who designed the People's Daily Headquarters in Beijing, said that they welcomed architects to do what they preferred and architects can be insane and need to do things paying little mind to cost.

Five of the prearranged buildings remain and stay in progress.
