A major stone-wall that forms the axis for the museum is placed along the linear site to provide an entrance to the journey of Jeju’s mythology. The wall provides not only various sceneries through openings but also functions as the main exhibition path that links the various programs such as permanent/planned exhibitions, multi-purpose rooms, and support facilities. Also, various outdoor spaces such as Sky-pond and Mother’s garden have been placed along the wall in harmony with the surrounding nature.

The outdoor spaces have been designed with motif from the history and myth of Jeju island. Through the usage of water, stone-wall, greenery and others, a total of 8 theme-designed spaces have been composed so that visitors could study and experience the mythical formation of the Jeju island.

Because of the natural surrounding of the site, special consideration have been given towards creating a sustainable building. Solar path & wind path CFD simulations have been conducted to minimize the changes to the current environment. Natural ventilation have been planned to reduce energy usages while many of the roof have been planned as greenroofs to reduce heat gains and to enable rainwater collection for future usages.
