The design of Tengchong Wetland Gene Museum mirrors the essence of the natural wetland texture and uses this motif throughout. The selection of a metal mesh roof system covering the main building is inspired by elements of traditional residential architecture. The double-layer white spiral metal mesh softens the edges of the main building and blends it seamlessly into the surrounding natural land form, creating an interesting virtual space between the mesh roof to the main building, providing a perfect provisional outdoor space for the future exhibition hall of the Gene Museum.
