SEJONG-DAERO HISTORIC CULTURAL SPACE in Seoul, South Korea by Daniel Valle Architects

Sunday, March 6th, 2016

Article source: Daniel Valle Architects

The proposal for the Plaza ambitions to become a new type of public space in Seoul, one capable to absorb in one same place the memories and cultural heritage of the site, the exciting underground world of passages and connections and a creative and technological platform for learning and innovating.

To achieve this endeavor, we propose to keep thirteen standing columns of the former Japanese building as the only objects standing in the plaza. All other urban furniture are substituted by a soft curved rubber surface acting as seating areas for visitors who wish to sit and have a pause. The new surface of the Plaza acts as a platform to empower memories and nothing stands between the columns and citizens.

Memories can be recalled by direct visual connection with the former building’s columns and other cultural heritage around the site such as Deoksugung Palace’s wall. We propose a complementary digital layer of engagement with the site’s hidden meanings; a layer that allows citizens to receive digital information in the form of specifically designed APPs and augmented reality platforms that complement the visual perception of the site. The smart plaza will provide 5G WIFI connection for the better display of these services. The Plaza also wises to be a large mobile phone charge station. Electromagnetic fields embedded in the Plaza’s pavement create areas of wireless recharge for mobile devices.

BAEGOT MIDDLE SCHOOL in South Korea by Daniel Valle Architects

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

Article source: Daniel Valle Architects 

South Korean schools are commonly oppressive buildings resembling a military pavilion more than an educational building. They are symmetrical, repetitive, dull and very tall. The organization of the various school buildings and their open spaces is replicated over and over with very few possible variations. Overall, schools lack emotion and warmth.

KYOMUNSA OFFICE in Seoul, South Korea by Daniel Valle Architects

Wednesday, January 27th, 2016

Article source: Daniel Valle Architects

Kyomunsa Publisher’s new headquarters in Paju Book City is a hybrid building that combines book’s storage with working spaces. The project takes the opportunity to propose a common container capable to absorb both programs. Consequently, the building is thought as a sequence of correlative sections constructed along an eighty meter long structure. The first section is a rectangular, one floor, six by eleven meters shape -“ideal” for storing books- and its last one in a three floor, pitched roof, fifteen by seven meters shape –a section that resembles to a living or working typology. The sequence of sections along the project is smoothly morphing between the first and last one.

Rock house in Gyeonggi, South Korea by B.U.S Architecture

Friday, January 22nd, 2016

Article source: B.U.S Architecture

#1. Revealed Rock

As the demand of rural housing grows, more and more people are developing and moving to spectacular mountainous areas. The site on which the rock house was located is also one of the rural housing sites developed in this way. Particularly, the greatest advantage of developing a mountainous area into a building site is ensuring the open view based on the high level as well as the right to the southern light with no interference. In addition, the rock house has a unique site specific: the naturally stony land, excavation of which thus has revealed a great rock on the site. The unrealistic rock we encountered when visiting the site has been located at the mouth of entering the house, so exquisitely hiding the neighboring house and opening the view toward the Northern Han River. From this time on, we have referred to this house as the rock house.

CheongTae Mountain’s Visitor Information Centre in Gangwon, South Korea by Namu architects

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

Article source: Namu architects

Admiration  for  a “gable roof” which is very ordinary.

A gable roof is one of the most common building types at agricultural village. It has been used not only for Buddhist temples but also for storages and houses that were unknown.  After modernization, the gable roof type is undergoing many changes that is about scale, usage, material and construction. Under the influence of industrialization and urbanization, long gable roofs need to be adapted to large-scale shed, vinyl greenhouse, and livestock processing plant. It is changing the scenery of agricultural villages. We pay attention to the gable roof that is common and long-running building type. As a “Living and Breathing Silence”, this building put the form of life by following the common building type on demand of site and programs.
