Site Museum of Wunushan Mountain City of Koguryo Kingdom

This museum is built for the ruins of KoguryoKingdom, which is listed in the ‘List of World Heritage”. Nestled against theWunushanMountain, the museum in green shadows develops along the contour of mountain. Twisted inner spaces give it a dynamic appearance. The exterior stone walls which show respect to the ancient ruins also extend into interior spaces. The gaps between volumes introduce natural light into exhibition halls implying the change of time. Key of the scheme is to awake the traditional spirit concealed in modern people’s heart.
