Museum of Art (MoA)

Located on Gwanak Campus of Seoul National University, the Museum of Art (MoA) was opened in June 2006. The building was designed by Rem Kolhaas and the construction of it was sponsored in by Samsung Cultural Foundation. After careful planning by the Seoul National University Campus Planning Committee, a sloping site was chosen for the location of the museum, which the architect utilized in the final design. The museum is divided into four basic program areas: Operations, Educational, Exhibition, and Library. Exhibitions are held regularly throughout the year and focus on the arts as well as areas of design. The museum is cantilevered on a concrete core, thus giving the appearance of lightness and floating in space, providing one of Seoul’s most unique spaces to present art and design and to hold conferences. Many international as well as national artists and designers have been exhibited.
