Neil Barrett ‘Shop in Shop’ in Seoul, Korea and Hong Kong, China by Zaha Hadid Architects & Neil Barrett

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects

A display landscape
The ‘Shop in Shop’ concept for Neil Barrett is based on a singular, cohesive project that is divided into sixteen separate pieces. Specific pieces have then been selected and installed into each of the four Neil Barrett ‘Shop in Shop’s in Seoul, and also into the Hong Kong shop; creating a unique display landscape within each store. Each separate element acts a as piece in a puzzle of the original ensemble, ensuring each shop maintains a relationship to the defined whole and with the other Neil Barrett Shop in Shop locations.

Namhae Cheo-ma House in Gyeongsangnam-do, Korea by JOHO Architecture

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Article source: JOHO Architecture

A rural house romance

Rural houses, or farmhouses are easily seen around countryside. However, these artificial forms are being placed here and there thoughtlessly in Mother Nature.A common stereotyped rural houses around Namhae, Jindo, and Pyeongchang have set a scenery of 20th century’s Korean farm village. One might say, the system of a local constructor also being a designer also being a constructor is extremely economical in terms of building rural houses. However, mother nature we have is too nice to only covered with identically produced rural houses.

The Curving House in Gyeonggi-do, Korea by JOHO Architecture

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Article source: JOHO Architecture

There is no home for parking

I remember that it was a winter day after snowing when I first visited the site. It was a rare residential lot with an open view to the south at the dead end of a small path beneath Mt. Gwanggyo. What was unique about this lot was that it was very hard to turn the car to come out of the path after more than 2 cars parked, because it was a small path only 4 m in width.  Ironically, the fundamental challenge was not only solving the parking problem but also creating a space for both parking and gardening to coexist.

Standing Shelves – G_Library in Daegu, Korea by TheeAe LTD

Sunday, October 14th, 2012

Article source: TheeAe LTD

Design Concept

The advanced technology of reading materials by computer, Kindle and even cell‐phone devices helps people easily access to information even way much more than what library could provide in last decades. Therefore, the main function of library seems to have a change in order to accommodate the current trend of getting and providing information.

Daeyang Gallery and House in Seoul, Korea by Steven Holl Architects

Friday, September 28th, 2012

Article source: Steven Holl Architects

The private gallery and house is sited in the hills of the Kangbuk section of Seoul, Korea. The project was designed as an experiment parallel to a research studio on “the architectonics of music”. The basic geometry of the building is inspired by a 1967 sketch for a music score by the composer Istvan Anhalt, “Symphony of Modules,” which was discovered in a book by John Cage titled “Notations.”
Three pavilions; one for entry, one residence, and one event space, appear to push upward from a continuous gallery level below. A sheet of water establishes the plane of reference from above and below.

S-Mahal in Gyeonggi-do, Korea by Moon Hoon (designed using AutoCAD and SketchUp)

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

Article source: Moon Hoon

When I was a high school student, I had a friend of slight build who always used to carry the Book of Changes with him and was interested in Korean traditional classical music. He was faithful in his religious life, at the same time full of curiosity about the secular world and always paced around restlessly. One day after 20 years, he called me out of the blue. He had in the meantime become a veterinarian and wished to move to India a few years later to lead his own life. After getting together with him for a chat over a drink a couple of times he asked me to design a house where he, his wife and her parents would live together. He wanted me to build an inner court and madang where he could raise animals, as well as a prayer room.

City Tower in Cheongna, Korea by Gianluca Milesi Architecture

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Article source: Gianluca Milesi Architecture

In the City Tower competition in Cheongna, Korea, was asked to design an high rise building in a city of future development. Our principal idea for this project has been to concentrate and organize an urban complex node in an unique building and a center of attraction. Our intention has been to formalize this main concept through a consistent architectural structure with a form that respects its consistency in every part, still taking different shapes in order to host the different functions of the project program.

Valiant Forces : Seoul’s Urban Stadium as a Poly-Valiant Structure and Explosive Tectonic Form in Korea by Michael Arellanes II

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Article source:  Michael Arellanes II

The design proposal is for an urban stadium that will serve the local colleges, high schools, and surrounding communities within Seoul to enclose sports venues and entertainment. The site is located in the Nan-Ji camping area near No-Eul Park, Sang -Am-Dong. This is an ideal site for its view of the city skyline and its proximity to nature. With such an explosive tectonic form placed in such a site, the project performs as a catalyst for varied activities over long durations. Scale and material elements activate the urban condition by the stadiums placement along the coast. With a radiant force of curvature and triangulated panelization through the path of the structures body, it adds a dynamic flux form with structural capabilities. The valiancy is applied to the outer and inner structural shell by its configuration, composite-performance, aesthetic, and operational functions. The dynamic curving exterior body is intended to have poly-operational purposes, not only a visual stimulus but as a layered structure with curving pockets of space that transition the occupant from floor to floor. Entrance into the structure begins at the center of the exploding tectonics; this brings them into a tessellated secondary structure that’s integrated into the stadium seating. The form of the exterior begins with radically fluid bodies and transition into sleek components that shield weather elements and perform with edifice veracity. The component shells distribute tension through the varied curved type and contain a gradient cavity that screens sunlight for the stadium audience. Materials for the project are stainless steel, carbon fiber, and concrete to create a strong monument of urban flux and valiance.

Concept:

Poly-Valiant structures are tectonics with multi-performance properties that address engineering, aesthetics, technology, surfaces, space, and component based typologies. The urban stadium attempts to contain sleek elements and lines like that of high performance sports cars. This gives the stadium valiancy in aerodynamic formal bodies and operational function. The aesthetic formalizes an exploding force that compounds into a structural shell, and then stretches across in a simple-elegant curve. It expresses the varied stages of force.

Yongsan International Business District in Seoul, Korea by REX

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

Article source: REX

YIBD “Project R6” is an urban boutique residence for short-term business people, young urban professionals, and foreign residents. Due to the transience of its target users and the short durations during which they are home, R6’s unit sizes are small, including 40 m2, 50 m2, and 60 m2 residences, with the majority being 40 m2.

To meet the trends of its users and compensate for its small unit size, R6 must engender a strong sense of community and its residences must be highly attractive, providing generous views, daylight, and cross-ventilation. Maximizing daylight and cross-ventilation are also paramount to providing a highly sustainable residence.
