Hanok Garden in Gyeongsangbuk-do, South Korea by Y Design Office

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

Article source: Y Design Office

Hanok Garden, a landscape project in South Korea byY Design Office, strips one of the older Korean traditional courtyard houses into its barebones with a small deck for resting. The old house is simply turned into a public garden. More is taken away than what gets added. The project asks and challenges the very basic questions about a person, a house, a city and a tree.

Located at Incheon Airport in Korea, this 250 sm project seeks to create an exclusive environment to offer unique travel assistance for HyundaiCard Black members. As a counterpoint to the surrounding visual noise and frenzied airport activity, the proposed parti is deceptively simple, with functions arranged in a freestanding “black box”.

Gyesan Church in Incheon, South Korea by iArc Architects (designed with Rhino and AutoCAD)

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Article source: iArc Architects

The site of the Gyesan Church, located in close proximity to an expressway interchange, is positioned at the center of the local transportation network. As the site extends along the expressway in a curved line, the positioning of the building was planned in accordance with the configuration of the site. In order to show the symbolism of a church, a tower was erected alongside the church, facing the expressway, and acting as a local landmark. In consideration for future expansion, the levels above ground were developed in a limited manner, while the educational and service facilities and a parking space were situated on the two basement levels. Above ground, a parking lot and an outdoor square are located, providing a place where buildings will be constructed in the future expansion. It is planned that during expansion, educational facilities will be relocated and the space will be changed into a parking space.

Transit Oriented City in Dongtan, South Korea by Ojanen Chiou Architects

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Article source: Ojanen Chiou Architects

Designed by SWA Group with Ojanen Chiou Architects LLP, the 157 hectare Dongtan Central Business Master Plan is at the heart of Dongtan City: a new urban center located just 30 km south of Seoul in South Korea.  The development zone is situated on a former agricultural plain that had been taken over by various industrial uses.  Bounded by a river to the west and mountainous terrain to the east, this zone is bisected by a major transportation corridor connecting Seoul with the southern reaches of the country.  At the core of the development is a transit center that will accommodate high-speed and metropolitan rail stations connecting with a bi-modal (bus + tram) transit system, and long-distance and city buses, establishing Dongtan City as a major regional transit hub.

Wavescape pavilion in Yeousu, South Korea by AQSO arquitectos office

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Article source: AQSO arquitectos office

The old ambition of producing a really moving architecture succeeds when it responds to the site and brief requirements. This proposal for the thematic pavilion of the 2012 Yeosu international exhibition has a focus for the people to experience and understand this liquid element through the specific place in which it is located: the ocean. In order to represent water through architecture, the dynamic and translucent qualities of the fluid are translated into details of the pavilion. The pavilion is not bound to a solid state. It is always in action materializing both dynamicity and the varying layers of transparency. The visitor will be guided directly into a zone of coexisting space of ocean and architecture.

Busan Opera House Proposal in South Korea by solus4

Saturday, September 17th, 2011

Article source: solus4


Solus4 of Kittery Maine and Jamestown Rhode Island proposed a design solution for the Busan Opera House that flows with the elements of culture and history of Korea.

Alfonso Lopez, lead designer for Solus4 describes the origins of their design: “A very special characteristic of Korean heritage is the linked uniformity of the art, history, culture and language. Much of this is based on the beauty and the pleasure that each element of culture gives to the individual and the community”.

Busan Opera House in South Korea by BaO & KJYAO & Pd’AA

Entry for the Busan Opera House competition 08-2011

Joined project: BaO + KJYAO + Pd’AA

BaO (Beijing), KJYAO (Beijing) and Pd’AA (London) collaborated on an exciting entry for the Busan Opera House competition in South Korea. The site of the competition is located on a reclaimed island in the middle of existing docks that, in the near future, will become a new cultural zone for Busan Metropolitan City. We propose an OPERA ON THE MOVE as a creative response to the evolving nature of opera in the 21st century, setting new standards of presentation and production in the performing arts. Our projects advocates both a programmatic dynamism (Opera = open cultural center for everyone) and a much more literal kind of move. We envisage that an element of Busan Opera House could detach itself from the main body of the building and sail across oceans to dock at venues around the world. If opera and theatre companies keep touring the planet to give performances, why couldn’t the building itself do so?
