New research and development centre for Hankook Tire breaks ground in Korea by Foster + Partners

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

Article source: Foster + Partners

A ground-breaking ceremony has been held for the Hankook Technodome, a state-of-the-art new research and development facility for one of the world’s leading tyre manufacturers. The new centre is located in Daejeon, at the heart of Asia’s ‘silicon valley’, and will provide an inspirational place to work, with light filled offices, state-of-the-art laboratories and dynamic social spaces to nurture a culture of openness and innovation.

The design of the new centre is rooted in analysis of the organisation. Rather than a conventional arrangement of offices above double-height testing areas, the building is arranged as five fingers, with parallel office and industrial units – this dynamic, integrated arrangement is highly flexible and promotes visual connections and interaction between the offices, laboratories and different divisions. Breaks between each finger draw daylight into the heart of the floor plate.

KPOP Curve in Gyeonggi-do, Korea by Moon Hoon

Sunday, June 15th, 2014

Article source: Moon Hoon

Baekhyeon-dong is divided in almost equal parts by its main café street. The buildings in the surrounding areas are similarly subdivided by their function; the lower and ground levels are commercial, and the first and second levels are typically residential. Amidst this sea of homogeneity, these structures engage in a quiet struggle for distinction, through the variation of form and materials, Of these, the building at street address number 582 is a music agency owned by an IT company. Sitting at a fortuitous corner, it serves as a rare contrast to the numerous other constructions in Baekhyeon-dong that fail to make the most of their locations.

Ahnjungguen Memorial Hall in Seoul, Korea by D•Lim Architects

Sunday, April 6th, 2014

Article source: D•Lim Architects

Ahn Jung-geun was a Korean independence activist, nationalist, and pan-Asianist. The Ahn Jung-geun Memorial Hall, rebuilt after the old one was demolished in 2009, is nestled in a small plaza behind the original building. Next to the site are the remnants of an old war shrine where Japanese people worshipped their warlords and spirits during the colonial era. Having dug up the age-old reminder of disgrace and humiliation, the new building for Ahn Jung-geun (1879-1910), a patriot and martyr, stands triumphantly over the site.

Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul, Korea by ZAHA HADID ARCHITECTS

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Article source: ZAHA HADID ARCHITECTS

DDP is the first public project in Korea to utilize the 3-Dimensional Building Information Modelling (BIM) and other digital tools in construction. Throughout the design process, every building requirement was considered as a set of inter-related spatial relationships which will define the social interactions and behavioural structure in/around the project. These relationships became the framework of the design, defining how different aspects of the project, such as spatial organization, programmatic requirements, and engineering come together.

Nine studio apartments had to be packed into this 5 story multiplex housing building. As is the case for all rental housing in Korea, the building had to be profitable and economical and yet the building should be pleasant and even pleasing for the residents.

A+ animal hospital in Seoul, Korea by JHY Architects & Associates

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

Article source: JHY Architects & Associates

A+ animal hospital interior design ventures what values atypical design could make in 53㎡, offering an utilitarian furniture fit into the programs. It was a critical challenge to make a spacious amusement place for pets, even 5 clinic rooms are necessary to operate the hospital. It was a main concern that the interior image from a street produces a symbol of A+ animal hospital as well as atypical design language produces all the required space in 53㎡. It was important to re interpret programs as much as to design space efficient furniture.
