Like Bruce Lee’s film and life’s work, the Bruce Lee Museum is a place dedicated to making Bruce Lee and his art of Kung Fu relevant and accessible to modern culture. The design of the museum references Chinese culture and uses Chinese indigenous materials fabricated with cutting edge Western techniques. The bamboo forest and Chinese tea house, archetypal elements of Kung Fu cinema, are recalled in spatial and arrangements. Bamboo is used both as planting and structural support, symbolizing the enormous strength of one’s simple life. Translucent jadeite panels — pure elemental rock — create a modern state-of-the-art theater to reflect Bruce Lee’s enduring appeal.
