National Museum of World Writing in Seoul

The National Museum of World Writing will be located in Songdo, South West Seoul, a city built on reclaimed land. The Museum will become part of the composite cultural space in Central Park, which is surrounded by an urban fabric composed of various tower blocks containing offices and apartments. This led us to the conclusion that the museum should demonstrate this uniqueness in its form and, therefore, be conceived as a formal exercise, in complete contrast to its surroundings of repetitive and monotonous tower blocks. The ultimate goal was to respond to the aim of creating a visual landmark and point of social attraction within this homogenous urban structure.
