Cosmos Intime in Gwangju, Korea by L’EAU Design

Tuesday, January 5th, 2016

Article source: L’EAU Design

Our ancestors house, which was built on flattened ground and had shape of ¤± or ¤§, was like a small confidential space for one¡¯s family that was based on Confucian philosophy such as geomancy and ethical relationship between husband and wife. Modern city, on the other hand, is reclaiming land from the sea, destroying the nature that had been preserved for centuries and mechanically producing artificial grounds in order to expend a fertile land for human life.

Five Trees in Busan, Korea by YounghanChung Architects

Saturday, December 12th, 2015

Article source: YounghanChung Architects

The trees disappeared without a trace. They probably had been settled like sardines along the topography of the mountain a long time ago. The place got filled with artificial trees of different height and size, placed in a proper distance from each other. Between the distance, a southern sea breeze would linger for a while or the midday warm light beating down from the northwestern high altitudes would collect in no time.

Go happens to be the Sirname of the client… mir in Korean means a dragon…so Gomir means Go’s dragon…

The site

Jeju is an Island south of Korean peninsular, famous as a vacation spot. The landscape is dominated by halla mountain in the center and basalt rocks by the sea. The weather is more balmy than mainland which allows for more exotic vegetation growth. The site is located just five minute walk from a famous tourist site called Yongdoam(dragon’s head), which is a basalt formation that looks like a dragon’s head.

Sunday, August 2nd, 2015

Article source: IROJE KHM Architects

  • Architectural flower

A great flower of metal masses, made of a minus curved surface is installed in ARCHI-FIORE as a concept using “pop art”, and by doing so I intended to enhance the identity of commercial buildings. To respond to context, to give identity as commercial building, the shape of this project has been curved shape like flower. We expect this complex building will be the architectural flower as land mark of this town.

Expansion of Commercial District and Destiny of Residential Area
In between Apgujeong-dong where the middle class gathered and high tech business town Samsung-dong with Teheran-ro as a center, Cheongdam-dong remained in relatively quiet residential area but alleys are gradually changing in the aftermath of surrounding commercial district. Other than having great market value of apartment and land and advantage of school district in this town, it still has good residential environment, but despite of thorough city planning like district units plan, it has possibility of threatening the residents as target of unwanted commercial district.

KHVatec Headquarter in Seoul, Korea by THE_SYSTEM LAB

Friday, July 17th, 2015

Article source: THE_SYSTEM LAB

In 2010, when the architects were invited to the concept design phase, it was widespread that the area including the site would transform into a commercial zone (change in Floor-Area Ratio to occur: 250% ? 400%) within next 10 years. The client required three important factors into the design. First, the design should not stand out alone from the neighboring buildings, but still acquire the company¡¯s brand image. Second, to consider that it is IT related company therefore requires high-security, which limits openings. Third, to include a small theater and a gallery for the employees and the public in respect to cultural context that will continue from Seoul Art Center (note that Seoul Art Center is in close proximity of KHvatec Headquarters).

Article source: ARCHIUM

Does the shape of space have to have inevitable order? What meanings do the basic conditions such as history and shape of land and rules and forms which determines the space have? Is the promise to observe rules valid? Furthermore, does such thing exist? What is universal value? Is it implied consent made by ordinary perspective to deal with them in a familiar and convenient way?

TWO MOON in Gyeonggi-do, Korea by Moon Hoon

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Article source: Moon Hoon

The client:

Sometimes, clients bring in a clear idea or a name of a place they envision. This time, a movie named two moon junction surfaced when we first met. He talked about building a private cultural center centered around a coffee shop and a gallery. A free spirited space , somewhat erotically charged like the movie,  a place full of festivity and relaxed atmosphere. The other important criteria included providing two separate buildings,  one for the client, and the other for his younger brother.  The budget was extremely low, so from the start we decided to build simple boxes with some impact points.
