The outer shell of the Samsung Museum is entirely covered in terracotta, characterized “by a triangular element in which the shape itself creates plays of light that alter and vary the material's color. Two elements are combined, one completely flat and the other projecting”. The triangular element has been applied to the entire façade, that is a simple parallelepipedal volume alongside a reversed cone.
