Shanghai Museum of Glass

Here's something I need to add to my list of places I have got to visit: The Shanghai Museum of Glass. This project is part of a campaign, aiming to make Shanghai an important cultural and artistic center, by launching no less than 100 museums in 10 years.
Displaying both traditional and contemporary glass art, the museum's vision is to show the endless possibilities that glass can offer.
The museum is built in a former glassmaking workshop, property of Shanghai Glass Co. The sleek interiors were created by Coordination Asia, who chose to go for a very modern feel, using black lacquered glass on the cases, floors, furniture and walls, while leaving the existing structure untouched.
Logon, a Shanghai based architecture firm handled the building's exteriors. The facade has an enameled glass finishing, with terms from the glass industry inscribed on it in different languages.
  For more information on The Shanghai Museum of Glass, visit the official website.
