War Letter Museum


Portland, OR

The War Letter Museum brings us to a new arrival of war memorial. In this project, the war letter is particularly delivered for public people to understand the war more indeed by reading the war letter. The war letter is a common way for soldiers to communicate and express the emotion to their families, which contains full of personal emotions. Since the letter is always private for person so it expresses more true stories. So many touched stories were found through those letters, and the War Letter Museum takes a role of delivering those brave and impressive stories. People always fight for freedom and a better life, which means most wars start with hopes. However, during the long period of fighting, so many people get injured, and even died, an how many families were broken by losing the dearest one. The process is ruthless. In this project, the War Letter Museum mainly focuses on the feeling of the release from heavy sadness. It aims to give people hope and courage. A floating cube is proposed in this project. People feel regret for death and encourage families by giving the hope. Therefore, cube form of the building implies the pure minds when everybody travels here. The sunken garden below the grade is the a place where people refresh their minds after reading all those stories, so it is not accessible until to the definition. The whole journey in the building is designed to be smooth that allows people to have a continuous thinking with continuous experience.

The project is located on NW Gilsan Street and NW Park Avenue in Portland, Oregon. The site is at the end of park with a shape of a long rectangle that takes six blocks. The other end of the park is downtown Portland. Therefore, the park becomes one of the most important considerations in terms of site analysis. The Pacific Northwest college of Art is right next to our site that shares a block with our site. The site is in an old district of Portland, and there are many artificial elements shown in this area. People live around here have a free lifestyle compare to people live in downtown area.

Fourth Floor Plan

accesses come from south side so it’s assumed that most people come to the building from north side. Therefore, the main entrance settles at south facade.
