INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION FOR THE NATIONAL MUSEUM COMPLEX MASTER PLAN OF ADMINISTRATIVE CITY

In the competition brief, five national museums are required; they are, National Children Museum, National Digital Heritage Museum, National Archives Museum, Natural Architecture and City Museum. In our design, we created five rectangular volumes that are aligned alongside the Geum River. They are put side by side and have different lengths. They sit on our proposed Urban Plaza of which we developed by pressing a planar surface downwards in order to build up a sunken area between the museum volume and the ground. In this way, a public space is developed, where multifunctional events, open air exhibitions and many different urban and cultural activities can take place.

We molded the museum volumes by pushing their ground surface upwards and pressing their top surface downwards at their central axis. We build up a bridge inside the volumes that way. A free space is formed under the museums, making up of a transition zone for the city inhabitants.

This diagram shows the entrances of the museum spaces from the sunken plaza. The small exhibition spaces can be observed in this perspective as well. They are cladded with glass and are illuminated during night time to become the sculpted elements of light. The visitor standing at the urban plaza can view the exhibited objects from the outside. The ceilings of small exhibition spaces are transparent as well.

There is a promenade between Archive Museum and Heritage Museum. This promenade is designed in the form of a ramp that passes through the giant reflection pool and ends at the riverside. 

CIRCULATION

These diagrams are the axonometric views showing the interiors of the five different museum volumes. The spaces are organized according to three main functions of permanent exhibition, temporary exhibition and storage units. 

STRUCTURAL SYSTEM

Structural system is designed by using steel frames that are supported on reinforced concrete foundations. The main bracing of the structural design carries the built volumes. These volumes sit on the steel slab system which is composed of smaller braces. 

SUSTAINABILITY

The building was designed to incorporate a range of sustainable building principles which will help the building operate in an efficient and cost-effective manner. The proposed mechanical system is based on the reduction of energy, water and waste. Fresh air is stocked during the night and used for the cooling of the volume during the day with the help of night flushing system. This reduces the accumulated heat in building mass during the day.
