The architectural prowess of SsD has come to the fore with the unveiling of Museum Hodu, a new art sanctuary set to open its doors on the 30th in Gwangdeok-myeon, Cheonan. Isu Moon, Director of Art Center White Block, has expressed enthusiasm for the museum’s integration within the White Block Cheonan Creative Village, a project designed to be in harmony with its natural surroundings.
Museum Hodu, brought to life by SsD’s innovative design, spans a significant 9,487㎡ area, featuring meticulously crafted exhibition rooms, educational spaces, a theater, and more. Emphasizing the symbiotic relationship between architecture and environment, SsD has employed clever structural adjustments to allow the building to naturally blend with the landscape. A notable detail is the rail design, which elegantly mimics natural curves, showcasing the firm’s commitment to organic integration.
The museum’s establishment expands the creative and cultural realm of the White Block Cheonan Creative Village, which has been a fertile ground for artists since its inception in 2018. Under SsD’s architectural guidance, the village has transformed into a multifaceted cultural space that includes a suite of artist studios and a communal lounge.
The opening of Museum Hodu marks a new chapter in the village’s history, with SsD’s design philosophy ensuring that the museum stands as a testament to the fusion of art, culture, and nature. To commemorate the opening, visitors are invited to the inaugural exhibition, which will run from the 30th of this month to the 31st of the following, featuring artists who celebrate the beauty of the natural world through their art.
Museum Hodu is a pinnacle of SsD’s vision for architecture that exists in a thoughtful dialogue with its environment, inviting the public to experience art within a space that embodies the tranquility and beauty of nature itself.
The museum will operate daily from 10 AM to 6 PM, welcoming guests to explore its offerings free of charge, in a building that is as much a work of art as the exhibits it houses.
