From the architect. Relatively lacking cultural facilities, the North-eastern part of Seoul required a new cultural space that would provide citizens with equal opportunities to enjoy cultural lives. Reviving the memories of Nowon which used to be a field of reeds, the design team visualized a cultural hill that would harmonize with the gallery park. Like a serene white mass integrated into the hill, Buk Seoul Museum of Art revitalizes the region which is mostly composed of monotonous high-rises apartments and provides a nature-friendly cultural space in which the green flow of the park integrates with the art museum to become a single entity. In particular, diversified circulation patterns create a space of ‘connectivity’ where various elements of people, nature, and art converge to create new possibilities in communication & collaborations.

Besides the exhibition galleries which are located on various floors around a central atrium, the basement floor is planned for educational and multi-purpose facilities which involve active communication and exchange of ideas with local citizens. On the first floor, library, multimedia facility, exhibition hall for children and teenagers are located for easy access. On the top floors and the rooftop gardens, an outdoor sculpture park is connected directly to the surrounding landscapes to create an extension of the museum into the park.

This Museum of Art becomes a green lung for the city surrounded by all those high-rises buildings

Impecable.

It looks iconic, especially compared to the monolithic gray context. Good contrast.
