Find out Everything There Is to Know About Wood in Mokyeonri's New Culture Museum

“The first public project of kinetic architecture in South Korea.”

By //Design

Mokyeonri Wood Culture Museum is the latest creation by Seoul-based studio softarchitecturelab + EUNJU HAN. The museum, based in Incheon Grand Park, was part of a competition held by the forestry service, which requested that companies send in proposals for buildings that deal with a large number of visitors.

softarchitecturelab + EUNJU HAN broke the mold by avoiding making the building purely from timber, instead adding the wood in a unique way by creating moveable panels outside of the mostly concrete building. Inside, they continued this ingenious usage, fixing angular wood panels to the ceiling.

The museum itself described the building as “the first public project of kinetic architecture in South Korea.” Take a look through the gallery to see the space for yourself and, for more interesting Korean architecture, check out moon hoon’s Simple House.
