“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.

Kossmann.dejong designs the new Canon of Dutch History exhibition in the Holland Open Air Museum, Arnhem
The Canon of Dutch History, the list of 50 topics that summarises Dutch history, comes to life as a new permanent exhibition in the Holland Open Air Museum in Arnhem. Housed in the refurbished entrance pavilion designed by Mecanoo, Kossmann.dejong’s design is imagined as a multimedia film set. The theatrical combination of physical, interactive and audio-visual media with unique collection presentations results in an engaging and fascinating visual narrative. The carefully reconstructed spatial collage of historic icons is interwoven with stories from everyday people, giving visitors an in-depth experience of the past from today’s perspective.

This proposal is about a serene dialogue between opposites: tradition and contemporaneity, construction and nature, unity and fragmentation, presence and absence, skyscrapers and park.
Songdo’s Central Park is a vast green area surrounded with high quality architectural landmarks, such as the TriBowl Cultural Center opposite to the site, and contrasts with an impressive background of high-rise buildings.

Since Art Historian Ragnar Josephson started to gather an archive documenting the artistic process, about 80 years ago, Skissernas Musuem, Museum of Artistic Process and Public Art, has gradually grown to a large cluster of buildings that, apart from housing the world’s largest collection of sketches, is an important carrier of the identity of the Museum. This is the first extension in the museum’s history that solely addresses its interface, with foyer, restaurant, shop and a multi-purpose hall.
