Nam June Paik Art Center, Yongin
Design of a raw and unfinished building. Open space of high variability.
No distinction between exhibition and research area
The roof of the new museum lies above the valley of the existing landscape and responds on the topography by folding upward both of its roof wings. Like the video, a moving image in time, the roof is transmitting information from inside the building to the outside. The floor supports the changing exhibition program, similar to markings of a playing field in a sports hall. The result is a building that is barely differentiated and that has the robustness to adapt to changes and specifications.
