The Mokyeonri museum by softarchitecturelab, located in Incheon Grand Park in Korea, presents a series of spatial experiences, sensing wood’s diverse attributes.
The Mokyeonri museum by softarchitecturelab, located in Incheon Grand Park, is the first prize-winning project of the competition for the Wood Museum, supported by the Korea Forest Service and organized by the Incheon Metropolitan City. The project name, “Mokyeonri”, means harmony between trees from different roots, which identifies the architecture of a series of spatial experiences, sensing wood’s diverse attributes.
This project was designed as an exhibition space where to sense wood and trees – their smell, vision, touch, and hearing. The design strategy is the symbolization of the arboretum in the Incheon Grand Park. The Ambience Wall – an interactive wood screen – creates a real-time ambience through parameters, reflecting human activities and micro-weather around this building. This can make the interaction between people and architecture, and communication between inner and outer space.
