 I think this place is really relaxing and good for stay I also want to stay there, it’s especially good for painters staying here for a while and making artworks.
 However — 700 square meters of exhibition hall is too large ! It’s really hard to fill such a large space by art. I always wonder why art museums or art galleries in China tend to be so large.
 Before making such a big box, contents are much more important. I always think so. —
