Chinese architect Wang Shu has recently been awarded with the international Pritzker Architecture Prize, the first person from China to win the honour.

The jury praised him for his designs, describing them as blending traditional Chinese elements with modern lines, while considering the environment.

The Ningbo History Museum, one of Wang Shu’s most iconic buildings, uses millions of tiles from demolished local homes, true to his ethos of constructing with recyclable materials.
