006 MOCA SEOUL

Nominated entry for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul, Korea

2012
Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul, Korea.  International Open Competition 
Nominated Prize

The Historical Wall of the site is conceptualized into an “Inhabited Wall” an enclosure acting both as a container for the museum programme and at the same time dividing the inner spaces into three distinct courtyards.

The Programmatic walls are structured into three typologies: Cultural/Public/Private all connected a central hub which acts as a mixing chamber. The three distinctive courtyards are direct by products of connecting the outer walls by the central hub. Each courtyard has a specific character and atmosphere, Public/Private/Back.

The museum has been organised around the idea of creating multiple narratives. The distribution of the Gallery spaces revolves around a central “Hub”, a pivotal space that acts as constant reference point for all visitors.
