AZPML and UKST win competition to design Korean Museum of Urbanism and Architecture

Architects AZPML and UKST have secured the commission to design the Korean Museum of Urbanism and Architecture (KMUA), a £31.4m project in Sejong, South Korea.

The competition was organised by the National Agency for Administrative City Construction (NAACC), which is looking to establish a museum exploring the history and the development of the built environment across the country.

With a total floor area of 17,050sq m, the museum will be part of a larger, 190,000sq m National Museum Complex planned for Sejong – a rapidly growing city which in 2012 was declared the administrative capital of South Korea.

When open, KMUA will house a collection of full-scale pieces of architecture and will "remain under construction indefinitely".

Designed to depict infrastructural scaffolding, the building will sit on a walled "treasure garden", featuring architectural artefacts.

"The KMUA will become a center of archive, exhibition, education, and research for urbanism and architecture," NAACC said in a statement.

"KMUA will also serve as a promoter of cultural awareness in urbanism and architecture for the general public, with goals of contributing to the betterment of the nation’s urbanism and architecture by establishing a national identity for Korea’s architecture and cities.

"KMUA parts from collection-centered museums of the past and moves toward a new direction of a “dynamic museum” that can sustain evolution and growth by accumulating and producing various contents through linking its archive, exhibition, education and research activities."
