Incheon Museumpark International Design Competition

Submission: November 30, 2022
Registration: October 15, 2022
Language: English, Korean
Location: Incheon, Korea
Type: Open Competition


Incheon Metropolitan City intends to create a place where city, architecture, and nature can harmonize through the cultural experience of citizens by establishing “Incheon Museumpark”, a cultural park complex including a museum and an art museum.

Incheon, where a port and Incheon International Airport are located, has grown as a gateway city to Korea. As the city of Haebulyangsu (海不讓水, The sea refuses no river), Incheon has a unique locality where diverse cultures coexist. The Incheon Museumpark project will provide an excellent opportunity for Incheon’s architectural and urban history by spatially materializing Incheon’s identity in the international context and cultural dimension.

We believe that great architecture can embrace diverse cultures and values and illuminate and energize the surrounding urban environment in which it is rooted. Through the establishment of Incheon Museumpark, Incheon Metropolitan City intends to provide the driving force for the urban regeneration of Incheon’s old industrial complex, to allow various visitors to experience healing through art experiences, and to create a landmark representing Incheon. To this end, Incheon Metropolitan City holds the “Incheon Museumpark International Design Competition” and expects creative and innovative ideas from outstanding architects at home and abroad.


This competition is open to both Korean and foreign architects (Registered Architects). In the case of joint application, a total of three(3) individuals or firms can apply. (An architect refers to a professional who is registered by related regulations of one’s country).

Foreign architect’s license holders cannot participate in this competition alone, but have to join a team with a Korean architect’s license holder as a representative.
