Korean Dandelion Farm in Chungcheongbuk-do, South Korea by Archihood WXY

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

Article source: Archihood WXY

“Evoking a sense of space“

The building is hidden by the silver-grass forest. The whistle of the wind from the sliver-grass leads the way. At the end of a leafy and curved pathway, you can meet a heavy wooden door. The black bamboo welcomes you through the spaced wooden fence, and natural sunlight filtering through the louver, enveloping the dark entry space. Walking through this entry space, you can see the peaceful front courtyard, covered with Korean fine soil.  Experience of dark and light: this is what triggers your emotional experiences in this space. When you enter the front courtyard, you can see the forest valley through the wide open Farm café. The sense of nature from the valley stays in the farm a while, and passes through the wooden fence.

Busan Opera House in South Korea by moh architects

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Article source: moh architects

The new ‘Busan Metropolitan Opera’ sits at the intersection point of the two bridges leading up to the competition site, tying the Opera into the city fabric while at the same time interweaving it with the picturesque waterfront promenade. The ensemble of opera and multifunctional theater further divides the site into a series of differentiated territories, each of which fully draws on the potential of a site suspended between city and sea:

Sillim-dong Share House in Seoul, South Korea by JYA-RCHITECTS

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

Article source: JYA-RCHITECTS

Sodam-Sodam is a share house.

The very first question we asked ourselves about this project was: “what is the most unique charm of a share house in today’s housing reality?”

The answer was simple: nicely designed and spacious spaces such as a kitchen, dining room, living room and bathroom, all of which individuals may not be able to afford or dream of—at least in a crowded and expensive city like Seoul.

Paradise City in Seoul, South Korea by MVRDV

Friday, July 29th, 2016

Article source: MVRDV 

MVRDV have designed Paradise City, a 9,800m2 entertainment plaza which sits within a larger tourist hub just 10 minutes from Incheon Airport in Seoul. Two buildings shape a retail complex and a nightclub within fluid, yet monolithic, forms. Each of the buildings takes its profile from its surrounding family, becoming a concrete casting of the facades that look onto them. The square, marked by a giant golden spot, becomes a beacon to those flying into the city. The project is being undertaken in partnership with Gansam Architects who also designed the wider masterplan of the complex. Construction is envisaged to begin in September 2016 and to be completed by 2018.

Seoul Urban Womb in Daebang-dong, South Korea by Architects For Urbanity

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

Article source: Architects For Urbanity

Cityscape

The site is located at Daebang-dong, where U.S. army base ‘Camp Grey’ had been located for 55 years until the retrocession in 2007. Located adjacent to this site was Seoul Women Shelter which accommodated prostitutes, runaway dementia elders, and vagrants from 1962 to 1998. The shelter was converted to Seoul Women Plaza. This is a symbolic place where tragic division of the Korean peninsula, poverty and hardships of woman in the era is accumulated and conveys the agony of Korean modern history. The purpose of this project to turn this gloomy and ‘deathlike’ space into a place of resurrection, a site of nurturing space that will foster welfare of women and families.
