Dongdaemun Plaza Kiosk in Seoul, South Korea by NL architects

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

Article source: NL architects

Young Joon Kim (yo2) is the supervisor of public space of Dongdaemun Plaza in Seoul. He has invited 10 offices to create 3 small kiosks each.

The idea is to eventually construct 30 booths that will provide room for different functions; a series of mini buildings for exhibitions, commercial activities, exchange of information, surveillance, interaction. The stalls range in size from 4, 6 to 9 m2. But what is a kiosk?

Until recently the site was occupied by two large stadiums (for baseball and soccer) that almost touched each other; a surprisingly intimate urban gesture.

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Article source: JY-ARCHITECTS

“What do you expect from us?”

This was the very first question we asked a client at our first meeting. The client wanted to open a local low-end restaurant that would not normally require an architect’s touch.

“I want a restaurant that is extraordinary and unique—like a forest house in the city.”

His answer was very clear.

Jeju Ball in South Korea by Kengo Kuma & Associates

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Article source: Kengo Kuma & Associates

When I visited Jeju Island for the first time, I was so much inspired by this dark, porous volcanic rock and wanted to translate its soft and round touch into architecture. As the result, the entire house emerged as a round black stone. From distance, the house appears like a single pebble and when you are close, you notice that many parts of the house are of the black stone.
