‘Jeongok Prehistory Museum’ by France based-studio X-Tu architects is now complete. Located on a paleolithic site of major archeological significance in Jeongok, South Korea.
The workshop is equipped as a museum space, a floor model for learning archaeological techniques, walls for projections, but also for workshops patterned walls of rock paintings and the floor strewn with large stone where the ‘we sit for the workshops of “flint”.
The facility aims to provide a multi-sensory space that represents ranging environments and atmospheres from the prehistoric landscape.
Stretching between two small peaks, the structure seeks to harmoniously co-exist with the natural surroundings, physically acting as a threshold between modern day and archaic times.
The natural threshold that represents the fault, and the emotion that results will be used to make a symbolic threshold for access to the “prehistoric”. Which will also access the “Prehistoric Park” Can we create paths, multiple paths through curves and hills of the project, because the paths, created by the animals that drink down to the river was already in the landscape of the “first men” … “a vessel of the time” of abstract form and timeless.
