Text description of the architects. The National Aviation Museum at Gimpo Airport, which is preparing to become an airport city, is a multicultural space promoted by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport to improve the status of Korea’s aviation industry. To create a new museum to become the hall of aviation industry education, exhibitions and experiences, three ideas expressing science, freedom, beauty and adventure were reflected in the design.

Firstly, “Air Turbine”, whose motif is inspired by an airplane turbine, is an iconic icon that integrates mechanical aesthetics and science technology as a landmark of the aviation industry. Second, “Air Show”, an aviation gallery in which the history of Korean aviation unfolds like a panorama, will be presented to realize a showroom of a new paradigm that brings a sense of freedom and dynamism of flying. Third, “Air Walk”, a three-dimensional exhibition path that flows through the levels of different heights, will be created to provide a more dynamic experience in the luminous lights of the architectural structure.

The site is planned in a multi-faceted circular layout with frontality in all directions, including the southern bypass, the support complex and the main access road (Haneul-gil), which is centrally located between the airport and the support complex. For the permanent exhibition space, a three-story void is created to create an integrated space where outdoor exhibitions are allowed through the transparent facade.

Two distinct buildings, a circular exhibition hall tailored as an exhibition space for free flight aviation and a rectangular administration building optimized for functions such as storage, work and facilities, meet in harmony with the surroundings. The interior of the environmentally friendly wing-shaped air turbine consists of a spiral exhibition space as the starting point of the aviation gallery, and naturally guides visitors through the aircraft on the ceiling and the dynamic space.
