Glass Pavilions Celebrate Korea’s Traditional Tea Culture

South Korean studio Mass Studies designed a series of spectacular new buildings for the O'Sulloc Tea Museum, an exhibition center dedicated to the history of Korea’s traditional tea culture. Located at the Seogwang Dawon tea plantation on Jeju Island, the pavilions have large floor-to-ceiling windows that provide an incredible view of the surrounding green tea fields.

The first pavilion is a two-story concrete building named Tea Stone that houses a classroom and new exhibition space for visitors to watch and participate in tea ceremonies. The second structure is called Innisfree and contains a cafe and shop full of tea and museum souvenirs.
