“Writing   is   a   medium   of   human   communication   that   represents   language   and   emotion   with   signs   and symbols.   In   most   languages,   writing   is   a   complement   to   speech   or   spoken   language.   Writing   is   not   a language,   but   a   tool   developed   by   human   society.”   It   is   a   great   task   to   trace   back   cultural   heritages through   studying   and   developing   forms   and   styles   from   various   ethnic   backgrounds   of   each   different writings   and   writing   systems.   In   this   sense   and   immediate   understanding   on   the   matter,   we   are overwhelmed    by    the    fact    the    expression    on    the    museum    of    world    writing    can    be    too    vast    and tremendous.   Hence,   creating   the   architectural   form   for   the   Museum   of   World   Writing   will   be   very   much rewarding   historical   event,   if   we,   as   architects,   can   express   into   a   form   of   conglomeration   that   brings the sense and beauty of the world writings. 
The   rectangular   main   masses   clothed   with   reflective   corrugated   metal   panels   are   mingled   into   the landscape.   The   existence   of   the   form   is   disappeared   into   the   nature   yet   it   stands   still.      At   the   end,   the architecture   of   the   world   writing   is   concluded   as   conglomeration   that   is   formed   to   express   in   landscape explicitly and hidden behind the wall implicitly.
The   location   of   the   museum   is   centered   at   ‘The   Central   Park’   of   the   city   and   it   provides   a   place   for people   around   to   relax   and   enjoy   open   and   green   nature   of   the   town.   Also,   it   provides   sceneries around   the   city   to   view   from   their   high-rise   residential   and   office   towers.   Contextually   given   facts   on the    site    require    us    to    use    the    landscape    as    to    be    major    part    of    the    design    process.    Thus,    the conceptually   the   museum   we   wanted   to   be   vague   as   if   the   ideas   of   writings   and   various   systems   are hidden   behind   the   wall.   Having   understood   vast   and   various   types   of   writing   systems,   we,   in   reverse, intended   to   minimize   visual   implication   on   a   form   or   mass   to   the   design   elements.   We   simply   start   to draw   our   imagination   on   the   given   site   as   if   we   are   writing   on   the   notebook   with   letters   in   various written characters from countries in the world.
Parts    of    written    characters    on    landscape    are    vertically    erected    to    be    viewed    from    the    horizontal landscape.   Vertically   standing   letters   are   engraved   to   the   wall.   Two   main   rectangular   buildings   are inter-connected   by   the   wall   which   becomes   bridges   of   two   buildings   and   they   becomes   transitional space   from   A   exhibition   to   B,   library   to   cafeteria,   office   to   canteen,   etc.   giving   various   and   continuous exhibition space.
