The thesis project is a prototype demonstration for developing the DMZ with ecological interest. The prototype is an ideal facility for functional and leisurely use of current residents and future users . The purpose for proposing an ecological intervention is not to reiterate the political militarized lines, but to preserve and strengthen the current populations’ existence and habitat. During my research I investigated different types of interest groups and people who are involved with the DMZ and CCZ’s natural habitat. People like farmers and artists have dedicated their career and life towards the evolvement of these lands after the demarcation of Post-Korean War . I considered their efforts as a network of social activities along the border. Strengthening this network by zoning the CCZ border as a cultural district will benefit each individual group or resident through their role within the network. This thesis is a proposal for progressive architecture that combines environmental and cultural aspects as a way to promote sustainable design. The project promotes an ecological lifestyle and physical setting that is both appropriate for the context of the environment—in the sense of physical site, climate, social culture and economies—and is appealing to a wide audience.The motivation for the thesis is to demonstrate that cultural excitement can be created by a responsible ecological design, which balances environmental sustainability and a concern for people in the region. Rezoning the CCZ from a war zone to a habitable greenbelt will redefine land as a viable regional and cultural identity.

an ecological intervention in the futre korean dmz

The buffer zone near the South Korean and North Korean demilitarized border is currently evolving into an ecological phenomenon. Since the Korean War, the land was preserved from urban development and has evovled into a natural wildlife and pollution-free agricultural and production zone. I am interested in how the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) and Civilian Control Zone (CCZ) have evolved despite their political limitations. The series of diagrams below illustratrate the evolution of the DMZ and the impacts it imposes on its current residents, workers, students, and the wildlife. I am concerned that urban encroachment will swallow the existing ecological strip and transform it into a new urban center. I hope that the strengthened network can deflect deveopments that can drastically alter the natural landscape of the CCZ . I intend for a prototype of interventions that is both ecologically and socioeconomically mindful of the current CCZ and DMZ. While it addresses the need for preservation , it will also attract outsiders to visit and participate in shaping the preservation of the land as a last remaining natural landscape absent of human touch. Furthermore, I believe that by prioritizing the preservation of the landscape, South Korea and North Korea have a balanced opportunity to build relationships beyond their political differences. Respecting nature and building stewardship for wildlife can be the base for both national cultures to grow towards a cooperative future after unification. I have selected Dorasan Complex--Train Station and Peace Park as the first site for ecological demonstration and intervention because it has the potential to act as a main gateway at the CCZ border. I view this thesis as a prototype for facilitating an initial exchange of trade and knowledge between outside visitors and local farmers for both countries. The project is intended to educate and celebrate the effectiveness and economic viability of ecological building practices. The intervention supports local production by bringing outside visitors to the CCZ , so that resident farmers can display their sustainably produced products and methods that are important in preserving CCZ’s history and ecology of the environment. The railway will help transport visitors in South Korea without traveling by car, but also establish a route in which the knowledge of preserving the CCZ can travel between South Korea and North Korea, when the railway becomes publicly accessible after unification. Secondly, my project shows how existing infrastructure has the potential to be reused and redeveloped with ecologically conscientious purpose, when the two Koreas are united. The proposed Centre at Dorasan features exhibition spaces, galleries, informal market spaces, formal seminar rooms, accommodations, a spa, facilities for testing and research, and an interactive restaurant with characteristics of BYOF (bring your own food) or (PYOI pick your own ingredients). The project will simultaneously embody sustainable strategies through building material choices, site organization, structural design, building and site performance such as, natural ventilation, reduced energy consumption, and on-site purification and waste disposal. The thesis promotes socioeconomic engagement and respect for the cultural context of the site’s conditions. At the same time, it strives to sustainably interact with the existing natural environment.

This prototype structure is a module that can be reconfigured in different ways. The project displays three different methods--the hotel, gallery, and the market all use the same structural principal but organized differently from each other. The hotel is configured as double row bay with a center atrium. The gallery is a singl row bay building with onesided exterior loggia. The market a free-plan space without a pavilion.

Manhatten and its neighboring bouroughs have multiple means of transportation-there are three airports and numerous heliports in the greater NYC area. However, most residents must travel an extra 10 miles on average to travel to the airport from the city. The city is not directly connected to these airports and creating an easily accessible and efficient airport can be beneficial for more frequent air travel in the future. The design challenge was creating a 155,000 sqft airport in the existing site of the Brooklyn Navy Yards for a hypothetical client, Richard Branson, who is seeking a new building for his new business venture Virgin SolAir, a commercial airline for sports aircraft.

plaza coahsi The Council of Arts and Humanities of Staten Island (COAHSI) are seeking a renovated space to create a larger facility for their current local artists. The main design challenge for this project was closely meeting the client’s needs and complying to a regulations regarding renovation and reuse of the current industrial site on Staten Island waterfront site. The site is located next to the Staten Island Ferry Station and it is a historic landmark. The client expressed her needs for their diverse artists and performers who will be actively using and exhibiting in the space. She desired for artists workshop studios, galleries, performing arts auditorium, and offices for the Council. COAHSI was granted funds and support from the Rockerfeller Foundation and were seeking architects to begin their design process. This project was worked as a team; the complete design and production was collaborated with Ilka Lin. Visiting critics for the studiowere Craig Dykers from Snohetta and Marc Tsumaki from LTL Architects. The design concept was using plaza as architecture that readdresses the entry, invites the public, functions as an urban connector, and frames views, and invents a new way to display artists’ production process from the plaza.

The design challenge was to create a musuem that engages the public at Syracuse’s historical landmark of Clinton Square. The site’s main facade on the east addresses the square and could serve as a potential platform for digital informational exchange. The idea to create an interactive digital screen that individuals can access and use through USB connection from their handheld devices reestablishes the historical Clinton Square as a technologically advanced communal square.

jordan embassy folded facade

The design challenge was designing a facade and public roof terrace for an existing buildilng as a renovation for the embassy for Jordan. From my analysis of Jordan, I was influenced by Petra and its exquisite heavy to light transformation produced by carving. I interpreted Petra monument as a folded surface that shows both heavy and lightness. While folding creates bulging geometry that alludes a massive appearence, openings from the folds that creates entrances in the facade allows for light to enter and reveal the actual thin depth of the facade material.

analytical sketches These sketches are from a series of urban analysis of Florence. The duomo is the central monument and urban focail point that people orient themselves in the city. The concept was to reillustrate Florence with stronger emphasis on the duomo as a central piece, and how it would reveal different urban relationships and hiearchy. The images are drawin using ink and graphite. The left image is an arched bird’s eye view. The image below is a fish-eye of the florence.

via del servi

analytical sketches

Via del Servi connects Brunelleschi’s architecture, the Duomo and Ospedale Maggiore, as an urban corridor that is best realized as a sequence. In these sketches, I am focusing on the differences between the Duomo and Chiesa San Anunziata church and the plaza surrounding the church. In these sketches, I am trying to explore how the public moves through this corridor and where the boundaries of public and private space shape the urban corridor.

sunchung christine min office work | siaplan architects&planners| 2010 gugal train station competition entry, 1st prize winner


Gugal Station in Yong-in, South Korea is a new railway station for Seoul Metropolitan subway system. Yong-in is a suburban city on the southern outskirts of Seoul and the urban development for new housing, shopping centers, businesses, and office complexes have only arised in the last ten years. As the new station is expected open in 2012, developers hosted a competition for building a complex around the station that give rise to a new urban center. Siaplan’s design concept is an outdoor complex that has a connecting bridge from second and third level to the plaza at the ground level. The geometry and form reiterates the topographical features of the site and allows for scenic views of the mountain in the north. I assisted work during the physical model building and photoshop process.

About Sunchung Christine Min, B. Arch, is an aspiring architect and designer. She is a recent graduate of Syracuse University School of Architecture in December 2011, and she is eager to start her career. Born in Seoul, South Korea in 1988, Sunchung moved between the U.S. and Korea twice before becoming a citizen in 1997. Sunchung studied music and violin since she was three-years old and she dreamed of becoming a professional violinist before becoming an architect. She chose to become an architect because she believed that architecture has the influence to reflect and address cultural context. Sunchung began her studies in architecture at Syracuse University in 2007, and received awards throughout her academic career, such as Citation for Excellence in Thesis Design, Crown Award, and Peter Moore Scholarship for Hand Drawing. Her final project, Modus Vivendi, is a thesis project that proposed a prototype that both preserves and inhabits the Korean DMZ in the future, without drastic environmental changes. She hopes to continue exploring the idea of projects that is built upon cohabitation of natural environment and urban development. Sunchung studied abroad in Florence and NYC and has traveled to Austria, Australia, Belgium, France, Italy, Korea, Peru, Switzerland and U.K. Sunchung has worked at a Seoul based architecture and planning firm, SIAPLAN, in which she contributed towards competition entries for Gugal Train Station master plan and Sejong City Office Complex. She has also assisted Francisco Sanin in the 2011 Gwangju Biennale Exhibition’s folly and exhibition design. Her hobbies include painting, photography, violin, yoga, and swimming.
