The project is located at the entrance of Keli Sensing Technology Company in Jiangbei Industrial Zone, Ningbo. Originally the site was a square, covering an area of 6,000㎡. In the year of 2010 the company determined to set up a museum in order to display their products as well as their collection of Chinese ancient and modern weighing apparatus.

The ambitious museum consists of an exhibition hall in the basement floor, the open ground floor as well as multi-functional spaces on 1st floor and 2nd floor. The museum takes up 1800㎡，while the ground floor garden covers about 4900㎡. There are five exhibition rooms in the basement, the entrance of which lies at the sunken plaza on the north. Walking down via two groups of orthogonal stairs, you will enter a sunken courtyard surrounded by 3-metre high glass brick walls and look up at the whole building. The first exhibition room is an open area with double floors in height, connecting the floating floor of 1st floor. Four sunken courtyards with Chinese wisterias and bamboos are arranged surrounding the five exhibition rooms. Glass walls, as the main device of getting daylight and fresh air, stay around the courtyard. Irregular road net is adopted in the ground floor courtyard, which enables people to walk into the volume free from the neighborhood buildings. The road is made of exposed concrete, and also the local cobbles as an assistant soft surface. Five or six cinder brick walls with various heights are set where it is necessary to screen the eyesight so as to provide a place for the Chinese wisterias to spread themselves.

The several main paths, about 1-metre wide, lie below the gaps between the upper boxes. The paths make thin strips of sky, which is more attractive when rain falls.
The whole volume is lifted by a 30x60m huge steel reinforced concrete structure, which contributes to the characters and strength. The surface volumes are made up of 5 glass brick boxes with different heights, which are properly arranged in a huge rectangular frame. The floor of the 2nd floor (10m) is the rigid plane of the structure. The corner column of 2nd floor is hung from the main beam beneath 3rd floor, suffering the most of the gravity.

The unusual mechanical system came through a series of difficulties from conception to accomplishment. The immateriality of glass brick contrasts with the strong concrete structure dramatically.
