G.Lab of Gansam Partners, Seoul-based architects was design of green architecture concept building of Gimpo Art Hall. Located on the eastern end of a city block, the art hall emphasizes pedestrian access by incorporating a friendly walk into the design. The building mass is also lifted above the street level to create a covered pedestrian plaza. Aesthetically, the structure sprouts from the ground, branches, multiplies, and envelopes the building. This structural-aesthetic reinforces Gimpo’s roots and modernization, while creating an interesting play on light and shadow. A Floating Theater nested inside the building volume allows for varying degrees of apertures which punctuate views from the interior and reveal the cityscape below.
