The winning design for an Automobile Museum in Nanjing, China by the firm 3GATTI is innovative and iconic in its conception. An entirely novel concept unique to the design is the two distinct methods of viewing offered by the project. A museum for cars, the scheme presents visitors with the opportunity to experience the history it details either while walking or while driving.

Composed of two interlocking spiral ramps, a conditioned ramp-space details the history of the automobile in chronological order, from the most historic to the most contemporary. On the outside of this space, the realm of the cars presents an inverse view. Whilst traveling in the object of modern creation, visitors view first the most recent models and slowly progress up the ramps to the most antiquated. The multiple paths make it possible to first drive to the top and from there, park and walk down the more gentle ramps to the bottom, experiencing both collections. From the ground level termination, visitors can then take an elevator back up and drive back down.

Throughout, the ramped building- resembling cut, folded and stretched paper, offers a multitude of varying viewpoints for viewing the objects on display. Moving away from only looking down on the automobile from head-height, inclines with cars held at extreme angles lend views otherwise inaccessible to viewers- showing views that were designed but never seen or appreciated fully.
