Perpetual Spring is a climate correction device that aims to create ideal conditions for human interaction, conviviality and critical thinking. The installation designed by Obra Architects outside the National Museum Of Modern And Contemporary Art (MMCA) in Seoul is an extension of the institution designed to allow for “outdoor” events.
The elementary pitched roof structure incorporates 188 polycarbonate eyes with a diameter of 90 cm, which flood the interior with daylight and create a regular pattern on the facade. The pavilion is equipped with systems for the artificial regulation of the internal conditions activated by photovoltaic panels placed on the roof of the museum. Perpetual Spring functions as a real bioclimatic greenhouse and during the cold seasons will host a winter garden, thus combining art, technology, culture and nature.
