Busan Times in South Korea by Moon Hoon

Monday, May 28th, 2018

Although I am afraid that if I call it the owl, it will continue going by this nickname and it will be regarded within this context, I would nevertheless like to call it the owl. If you look at the building from the roadside, you may associate the shape formed by the angles of the setback regulation that has now been abolished with big head and two eyes.

The Gate in Busan, Korea by Hyunjoon Yoo Architects

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

Article source: Hyunjoon Yoo Architects

I was surprised twice when I first visited the Daekyoung Factory. The first surprise was the beautiful scenery of the mouth or the river of the Nakdong River, and the second surprise was that the beautiful scenery could not be seen at all from the factory complex. There were three buildings in the complex, with two buildings lined up on parallel lines, making a rectangular plaza. The plaza was busy, with many workers passing by. The third building was placed perpendicularly with the plaza, blocking the scenery towards the sea. I felt sorry for the factory workers, who are so close to the beautiful scenery, but could not even see it.

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:

Five Trees in Busan, Korea by YounghanChung Architects

Saturday, December 12th, 2015

Article source: YounghanChung Architects

The trees disappeared without a trace. They probably had been settled like sardines along the topography of the mountain a long time ago. The place got filled with artificial trees of different height and size, placed in a proper distance from each other. Between the distance, a southern sea breeze would linger for a while or the midday warm light beating down from the northwestern high altitudes would collect in no time.

The basic concept of this project was the discourse about the overlapping of open and closed spaces and of public and private areas.

While the movie theaters are located in a mountain-like building, the Center’s public space is shared between an outdoor cinema and a huge public space which is called Red Carpet Area  i.e. reception area.

Busan Eco-Center in Nakdong River Estuary, Korea by Atelier Tekuto

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Article source: Atelier Tekuto

Won first prize at the UIA certified international competition “The Eco-center at the Nakdong River, Busan, Korea” sponsored by Busan City in July 2004 with the basic planning starting in December 2004.  This was the first international competition sponsored by the Korean government, which held difficulties in many aspects regarding different standard and acknowledgement for architecture starting from receipt of the prize up till the completion of the building.  Large issues were the low design fees (which covered design fee for both Japan and Korean teams based on standard level cost which were on three level rates set up in Korea according to content of work, as well as business trips and translation costs), architectural regulations, contract conformation of architectural design (we could not become the legal contractor), and not being able to get involved in the actual field management.

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 Lacoste+Stevenson Architects

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Article source: Lacoste+Stevenson

To maximise the amount of parkland and allow large outdoor events to take place on the new island created in the port of Busan, South Korea, the Opera House is a compact design.  The building is an interpretation of Korean stone art or Suseok.  It is an intriguing, shiny, scaleless object.  When not in use, this solid shape is entirely closed.  In the morning, it opens up like the entrance of a space ship, a large gangway lowers down creating a monumental stair for boarding.
