제주도립김창열미술관 2019


The Kim Tschang Yeul Museum took two years to complete.
It is designed around one of artist Kim Tschang Yeul’s motifs: water and water droplets.
In the center is the “Garden of Light” an outdoor space complete with a large fountain.

Around it, eight separate structures are arranged, including permanent, temporary, and special exhibition halls, museum storage and office space. They are tied together with a thin exterior wall of mostly glass.
The effect is remarkable. You walk from room to room and explore the space in a very organic way. The dark, cave-like hallways open into bright, spacious exhibition areas. There is also a cafeteria, open-air stage and education room.
