Text description provided by the architects. The National Aviation Museum, located at Gimpo Airport which is preparing to become an airport city, is a multicultural space promoted by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport to elevate the status of the Korean aviation industry . In order to create a new museum that will become the hall of education, exhibits and experiences representing the aviation industry, three ideas that express science, freedom, beauty and adventure were reflected in the design.

First, “Air Turbine”, whose design was adapted from an airplane turbine, is a symbolic icon in which mechanical aesthetics and scientific technology are integrated as a landmark of the aviation industry. Secondly, “Air Show”, an aviation gallery, where Korean aviation history unfolds like a panorama, is presented to realize a new paradigm exhibition space that gives a sense of freedom and flight dynamics. Third, “Air Walk”, a three-dimensional exhibition walkway that crosses the planes of different heights is created for a more dynamic experience in the brilliant lights of the architectural structure.

The site is planned in a multi-faceted circular layout with frontality in all directions, including the southern ring road, the support complex and the main entrance road (Haneul-gil), centrally located between the airport and the support complex. For the permanent exhibition space, a three-story void is created to create an integrated space where outdoor exhibits are permitted through the transparent facade.

Two different buildings, a circular exhibition hall customized as an exhibition space for aviation to fly freely in the sky, and a rectangular management building optimized for functions such as storage, work and facilities, meet in harmony with the surrounding environment. The interior of the eco-friendly wing-shaped air turbine is composed of a spiraling exhibition space as the starting point of the aviation gallery and guides visitors to walk naturally through the planes on the ceiling and in the dynamic space.
