To design the National Museum of World Writing, we put forward the basic idea of using the sign of Ying and Yang, which is a familiar plan for the people of the East. The main concept of the design originated from this sign.

We changed the curved Yin and Yang lines into angular lines due to the elongation of the site.
Due to the presence of the artificial lake beside the site and height limit, we made a combination of modern architectural principles and Korean architectural concepts. Such as purity of the form and the materials and harmony with the environment as the main principles of the design of this space.
