Urban Plaza

Professional Work with Yazgan Design Architecture

National Museum Complex Competition Entry


Client - The National Agency for Administrative City Construction (NAACC)

Design Team - Kerem Yazgan, Kongpyung Moon, Aylin Kose, Gozde Bulut

3D visuals - RJ Models

Consultance - GMD Engineering

I took major role in this project, starting from initial concept of the design untill the submission of it. All of the diagrams in the project are done by myself, sections and plans are done by Kongpyung Moon, Kerem Yazgan, Aylin Kose and Gozde Bulut.

Urban plaza does not only have the entrances to the museums but also glass cubes that visually connects the inside of the museum and the storage tank. Therefore, people will witness the value gaining period of an art work. The public will be the part of the value. The promenade connects the five archive museums with heritage museum, facing the Geum river, also, slightly sloped walkways is the introduction, respecting the legacy of national heritage.
