National Contemporary Art Hall
 
The architecture of The National Contemporary Art Hall is a response to the demands for an international art showcase and for maintaining traditional Korean aesthetics.

The building combines a central "Ramp Core" resembling a torch and the two main wings of the Museum, with one in the shape of a semi-circle devoted to painting and the other in the shape of a Korean castle devoted to sculpture.

The area surrounding the whole museum presents a picturesque painting of a certain Korean lifestyle, with its glimpses of tranquil traditional houses ensconced behind village walls.
