Architecture and StorageArchitecture
Gyeonggi MoMA’s building was designed by an Italian architect, Guido Canali, and planned by Korean architecture firm, Yetap. Completed in September 2006, the museum building appears like a ship that sits low on the water to be in harmony with the surroundings. The large glass structure, symbolizing a sail, cuts through the middle of the building and maintains the visual balance of the building.
The museum is equipped with the very latest equipment suitable for the preservation of artwork and provides an ideal environment for maintaining the collection in an efficient and systematic way.
The Main Gallery is comprised of a large gallery with an 8.5 meter-high ceiling and four other smaller galleries of 3.6 meters in height. The galleries are arranged organically, allowing the composition of exhibitions to vary according to the characteristics of each specific exhibition.
The Project Gallery is conceived to accommodate experimental and challenging artworks, thus enhancing visitors’ appreciation understanding of the latest trends of contemporary art through the displays of novel and dynamic works.
