Client: Korean Airlines


The Korean Air Museum is part of a larger development project located in Seoul, South Korea which includes a hotel and retail shops. The museum, surrounded by historical sites, will serve as the gateway to the new development. The development will incorporate elements of stone, earth, and water. The museum concept also takes inspiration from the painting “INWANGJAESAKDO” by Jungsun which illustrates those same facets of the surrounding Korean landscape. The museum will represent the mountainous landscape the painting depicts.
