Architects AZPML and UKST have secured the commission to design the Korean Museum of Urbanism and Architecture (KMUA), a £31.4m project in Sejong, South Korea.

The competition was organised by the National Agency for Administrative City Construction (NAACC), which is looking to establish a museum exploring the history and the development of the built environment across the country.

With a total floor area of 17,050sq m, the museum will be part of a larger, 190,000sq m National Museum Complex planned for Sejong – a rapidly growing city which in 2012 was declared the administrative capital of South Korea.

When open, KMUA will house a collection of full-scale pieces of architecture and will "remain under construction indefinitely".

Designed to depict infrastructural scaffolding, the building will sit on a walled "treasure garden", featuring architectural artefacts.

"The KMUA will become a center of archive, exhibition, education, and research for urbanism and architecture," NAACC said in a statement.

"KMUA will also serve as a promoter of cultural awareness in urbanism and architecture for the general public, with goals of contributing to the betterment of the nation’s urbanism and architecture by establishing a national identity for Korea’s architecture and cities.

"KMUA parts from collection-centered museums of the past and moves toward a new direction of a “dynamic museum” that can sustain evolution and growth by accumulating and producing various contents through linking its archive, exhibition, education and research activities."
