SEOUL, July 13 (Yonhap) -- A wood museum in Incheon, west of Seoul, has been chosen for an architectural prize of a world authority, according to the awards' website on Thursday.

The World Architecture Community (WAC) announced that "Mokyeonri: Kinetic Wood Museum" located in the Incheon Grand Park in the port city as one of the 10 winners in the "Realised" category of the 25th World Architecture (WA) Awards.

Completed in January by Han Eunju, head of SOftARchitectureLAB Co., the three-story building was designed as an exhibition piece itself where visitors can diversely sense wood and trees without independent exhibition space, the WAC commented.

Launched in 2008, the WA Awards are given three times a year in the three categories -- "Designed," "Realised" and "Student."
