Presenting: The LeeUm Samsung Museum of Art located in Seoul, South Korea. The architects were unable to agree on a style of design, and so incorporated three distinctive and separate influences into the assemblage of buildings. The museum "village" is nestled into a mountainside and connected by a universal courtyard. The three buildings contain the finest collections of art and each installation is placed into the environment that suits it the best. Designed by Thomas Balsley Associates.
