Jeongja details – Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Jeongja- Edmonton, Alberta, CanadaA few days ago I shared an image of the Jeongja (a traditional Korean pavilion) located on the Royal Alberta Museum grounds in Edmonton, Alberta . The building in its entirety is beautiful, however when you look closer and examine the details it is stunning.

Jeongja are traditionally built of wood and stone. Nails and screws are not used as fasteners, but rather they employ traditional joinery techniques.
