AZPML masterplans sejong national museum as a continuous hill landscape

AZPML has released its proposal for the masterplan of the national museum complex in sejong city, korea, a scheme embedded into the constructed landscape. the complex will have a linear dimension, which will mediate between the park and the riverfront. this border condition, and the nature-like setting will constitute the core concept for the museum complex’s masterplan: a topography which flows between the greenery and the riverfront condition, evolving into a more urban environment.

AZPML‘s scheme would be structured to become a museum in the park. the specificity of its location — the future facility is surrounded by water on two sides — otherwise will be embedded into the future central park of sejong city. due to the absence of a neighboring urban fabric, the completed complex become an integral part of the park itself. another element of the location is that it unfolds along the riverfront as an edge of the central park. the design has been conceived so it can be built with maximum flexibility; every museum will be an independent piece that can be constructed separately, rather than being bound to build the whole complex for it to work.

 

 

‘unlike the ACC in gwangju, or the santiago de compostela cultural center in spain our proposal is that the complex can be completed at any point, regardless of how many of the museums are eventually completed, and it will work as a sophisticated park environment. these are two projects of a very large scale, which have become the victims of their own ambition.’ state the architects.
