Prefabricating the Void in Korea by Dioinno Architecture PLLC

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Article source: Dioinno Architecture PLLC

The timber structure in Korean traditional architecture presents fundamental nature of sustainability, maintaining the concept of physical space (whole) even after continuous renovation, change and transformation of materials (parts). Using the mode of ‘Prefabrication’, we attempt to reconstruct the space of living, based on ‘Madang’, an empty space with multiple functions and diverse social implications. Two base modules are used to create the diverse configurations, the solid and the void. The module in the Korean traditional housing is called ‘Kan’, the bay between columns. It needs bigger timber necessary to build larger ‘Kan’, which makes it very expensive to construct. Also, more ‘Kan’ implies bigger scale of construction, implying socio political values in the modularity of architecture. Sometimes, the housing is moved to other locations after the disassembling and reassembling, since permanent joint connection is rarely used in the traditional timber technique. The material is continuously replaced and reconfigured to strengthen the sense of space, emphasizing the relationship between the solid and void, the nature and architecture. The ‘Madang’ in Korean housing is naturally a void, a left over space. It is open framework between public street and private housing so that it can serve for either the public event, or extended private function. In the modern multifamily housing equipped with market driven globalization, the void has been disappeared. Without the void, apartment housing is the repetition of same plans. The functional space standardized the way of living. The façade becomes thin membrane dividing the public and private. Therefore, Prefabricating the void suggests to reconstruct diverse function of voids by prefabrication in architecture, giving depth to the façade, providing open framework for the residents to use with various purposes.

The Cheongna City Tower in Incheon, Korea by YBGSNA

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

Article source: YBGSNA

The first issue was achieved by introducing a structural spiral organic element. The vertical solid elevator core of the building is wrapped by a steel spring like spiral element. The spiral element functions as a structural element and as a vertical circulation option. The flexible nature of the spiral enabled us to expand and shrink the thickness of the tower in relationship to structural and functional needs along its vertical section. The constant slope of the spiral enabled the creation of a subtle and almost “natural” organic grace to its monumental presence.

SM Town in Seoul, Korea by Yong Ju Lee, Steven Chang, Kyungsun Lee

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

Article source: Yong Ju Lee

Since it is the first branch of SM Town and a flagship store, a future-oriented image was depicted on the facade. It is the first case where the patterns of the Celebrity Shop “SUM” are applied for the first time. A unique idea that can help raise awareness of the brand was needed. As such, many thoughts were given to the details and design, including the size of the pattern, the space in between, selection of material and the location of the artists’ names of SM on the facade.

Shear House in Yecheon, Korea by stpmj Architecture P.C.

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

Article source: stpmj Architecture P.C.

Shear House, a single family house in Korea, seeks how a simple treatment in pitched roof typology improves environmental qualities and influences to program organization. The volume of gable on the West end changes its placement along with body of house. It projects out toward South at the East end, while maintaining its triangular shape. The sheared volume is continuously pulled out towards South responding to sun orientation. It creates a deep eave in South and a terrace in North. The eave blocks direct sunlight in summer and allow natural lighting in winter. Openings at terrace in second level increase natural ventilation throughout the whole house. In addition double skin-facade controls heat and humidity thus the house reduces 20% of heat gain and loss in summer and winter.

The Community Center in Aphae-do, Shinan-gun, Jeollanam-do is located on a special site, and has a special programme. First of all, it was my first building project to be built on an island. Second, the main programme of the building was the public bath and restaurant for the elders in the village. The elders, who make up most of the population in the fishing village, do not have a decent bathing facility in their home.

Mapo_ New development and a hybrid urban landscape

Mapo is a district undergoing considerable transformation in Seoul through a recent redevelopment craze. Large enterprises, hotels and apartment complexes unable to bear the cost of rent in existing urban centers are entering Mapo’s competitive market. Therefore, the image of Mapo is changing with the development of large apartments complexes behind a single layer of high-rise buildings positioned along the edge of the main streets. In contrast, a part of Mapo district remains undeveloped and intact as it was built from the 1960’s with small scale buildings.

Heterojunctional Pavilion in Gyeonggi Province, Korea by URBAN PROJECT ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN STUDIO

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

Article source: URBAN PROJECT ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN STUDIO

This project considers the Gaon Lake Park in which the building is located as a significant contextual reference. The large park is sitting in the middle of a huge neighborhood with apartment complexes, two hours from Seoul metropolitan area. This unique type of construction is typical of Korean urban development—building and selling thousands of housing units at one time. Although this type of development contains potential negative side effects for the future, the landscape is more positively designed than the apartment complexes in preserving the natural wetland which is left as the original entity in the park.
