This project is mainly to upgrade the hardware facilities, improve the appearance of the museum building, and solve the problem of water leakage from the roof. It is expected to make KMFA a museum that can keep up with the times in terms of both hardware and software, becoming a real international exhibition venue.
Different from the planning concept of traditional art museums, the 21st-century art museums emphasize publicity and focus on "people." The museum is no longer just a sacred temple but integrates into daily life. It is a generator of urban creativity and an international platform. From the pure aesthetic to a serial compound, it combines the land texture and the local characteristics, developing a unique large art museum park.
The new space will be more open, accessible, and public. In addition to the beauty and function of the building itself, more consideration is given to the relation between the structure, the environment, and people. It should also have the diversity and flexibility of space utilization. Through this project, it is hoped to deepen the locality, connecting the cities and the world.
