The architectural proposal is to express the contrast between dark and light elements of the future museum. A kind of reference to the importance of the lighting in art and photography work.
As a place that aims to develop cultural interaction, the future Seoul Photographic and Art Museum will be a project open to its surrounding community.
Enclosed exhibition spaces that don’t require natural light will contrast with lobby space that on the opposite will be completely open to light. “Black Box” versus “Light Box”. Because of its transparency the Light Box will naturally arouse curiosity of the visitors to the various organized events.
The lobby will become an open and activated space dedicated to improve interactivity, connectivity and flows in the museum. Transparency will act as a social vector as it will establish visual connection and new opportunities between indoor and outdoor.
