For our second museum visit of the year we will be heading to Itaewon.  We'll meet at the Leeum Museum entrance at 1030 and after touring the exhibition we will move to Itaewon centre for lunch.

The 'Wisdom of the Earth' exhibition features photographs of royal palaces, Buddhist temples and traditional houses taken by six prominent Korean photographers with subjects including arthitecture-related maps, paintings, artefacts and replicas.  Taking full advantage of state-of-the-art information technology, including digital magnifiers and 3D images, the exhibition beautifully fuses tradition and modernity.  

It also reflects the spirit of the ancestors who placed paramount importance on the harmonious relationships among heaven, earth and human behings.  To enhance the visitors' understanding, it explores traditional architecture under the categories of religious architecture, royal palaces, city walls, government offices and the homes of ordinary people.
