“Open Ground,” the new entry floor of the museum is designed around three large-scale programmatic zones - WORKSHOP circle, floating PROJECT GALLERY, and the new environment for Paik’s “TV GARDEN (1974)”- with a strong figural presence and spatial characteristics, and aims to promote extended duration and accentuate the unexpected and multifarious ways that the public interacts with the art and its stories. Combined with supplementary mobile elements, the three buildings within the building also frame additional user amenities.
