Buk Seoul Museum rooftop gardens by Samoo Architects and Engineers.

Located in a part of Seoul where there had traditionally been few cultural facilities, the Buk Seoul Museum of Art became centre piece in a strategy to revitalize an area of the city with new cultural spaces.

Samoo Architects and Engineers, conceived the museum as a green hill with the museum rising from below. In effect they created a landscape roof that is rich in texture.

An important feature of the design is the diversified circulation patterns that encourage visitors to meander across the site, discovering a new sequence of external spaces on each visit. This diversity is important in such a small place, serving so many people.

As well as exhibition spaces, the museum contains a library, multimedia facility, exhibition hall for children and teenagers, a rooftop garden, and an outdoor sculpture garden that extends the museum into the park.
