Museum in memory of Yoon Dongju, Korean poet.

Seoul, Korea



Yoon Dongju’s memorial is the conversion of a small reservoir and two water tanks into a museum. Located on the bottom of a small hill – which was developed the previous year  –  the issue was to preserve the humble quality of the site while making it consistent with the poet’s universe. “The sky, the wind, the star and the poem” is the title of Yoon Dongju’s most famous poem, and a faithful description of the spirit of the place.
