INTERACTION INBETWEEN ;the reinterpretation of Centraal Beheer Office
How to recolor the new function and the context on Centraal Beheer Office, the icon of Dutch Structuralism Architecture?
The graduation studio is dealing with Centraal Beheer Office, designed by Herman Hertzberger, one of the most representative Structuralism Architects. What is notable in Structuralism architecture, including Centraal Beheer Office, is that they already inherit the possibility of modification in themselves with the response of changing future requirements. Related to this characteristics of Centraal Beheer Office, the project set the position on adapted reuse design as â€˜keeping the rule while breaking the ruleâ€™; more precisely, modifying the existing situations while reusing the underlying architectural principle of Herman Hertzberger. Through this methodology, the project aimed to make a reinterpretion of Centraal Beheer Office. With the new program, Art Academy, the project aimed to 1. how to retrieve the publicness of Centraal Beheer Office, 2. how to accommodate the new program, and 3. how to improve the comfort of the building while keeping the existing value of the building. Based on these purposes, the design strategies of this project consists of three parts.

How to recolor the new function and the context on Centraal Beheer Office, the icon of Dutch Structuralism Architecture?
Despite its architectural meanings and values, Centraal Beheer Office is now disconnected with its surroundings and remained as abandoned place. Therefore, it is essential to balance between preserving the building’s own value while improving its current situation. In this regard, the primary position in this project toward re-designing Centraal Beheer Office is modifying the existing situations while reusing the underlying principle
of the building. In other words, instead of conservation nor mere transformation, the project is aiming to become ‘the reinterpretation’ of Centraal Beheer Office. Under the slogan of ‘keeping the rule while breaking the rule,’ theprojectaimedtoreinterprettheinitialideaof Hertzberger. The project attempted to make Centraal Beheer Office regain its architectural meaning while catching up with the new requirement of the present.

The essential aspect of the master plan is to retrieve the publicness of the building. To accomplish this goal, one of the vital tasks is connecting the building with the urban context. Creating the new main entrance by demolising existing parts was taken into consideration. Through this process, it will be able not only to make the building more recognizable from the city but also to link the building and the city.

IN-BETWEEN; THE CITY AND THE BUILDING Broadening Inner Street
Centraal Beheer Office has been disconnected from the surroundings and remained as a lonely island of the city. Therefore, it was essential to retrieve the publicness of the building. For this reason, the project aimed to bring the urban context into the building. By broadening the inner street, the building would be able to be linked with its surroundings and bring people into the building. This process was held under the moto, â€˜keeping the intension of inner street, while breaking the existing form.â€™

Inner street - Northwest part
To broaden the inner street, the existing structures on the center part have to be removed. After demolition, the new structure will be inserted, which is following the existing grid line while showing contrast with existing concrete structure through its wooden materiality.

IN-BETWEEN; THE SPACE AND THE FUNCTION Spatial Reorganization
Though it was designed based on the idea of Individual Interpretation, the spatial organization of Centraal Beheer Office was more customized for office program. Therefore, to accommodate the new program, Art Academy, into the building, it was necessary to reorganize the spatial system of the building. To apply the concept of â€˜interactionâ€™ to the architectural design, the project suggested the spatial elements that could create interaction among the people. These elements were applied into in-between space, the gray zone where could create unexpected interaction.

Public area - large stairs
Semi public area
The public zone was planned as linear form to improve the way-finding of the building. It consists of several types of spaces, from large stairs to the greenery open space.
The gray zone is designed as semi-public and semi-private space, which are mostly planned as flexible spaces that could be differently used by the demand of users.
The private zone is mostly planned as the studio space for each of department. They are located on the side to ensure the natural light and the privacy.

IN-BETWEEN; THE DESIGN AND COMFORT Double Facade Scheme To improve the sustainability of Centraal Beheer Office, this project applied a double facade scheme to the existing building. This scheme will create in-between space, which could function as an attractive and flexible space.
Through a double facade scheme and rooftop window, the natural light will lighten the building. To avoid overheating in summer situation, the project applied PV cell on the rooftop. At the same time, the solar heat collector system was also applied to reuse the summer heat during the winter period.

SMALL NEIGHBORS revitalization of neighborhood
Mariahoeve, Den haag, NL
Too wide road, irresiponsibly open spaces make, and contrast between public and private; these are the reasons why Mariahoeve is losing its human scale. They caused the lack of the sence of community between neighbors. Therefore, it was necessary to form small units of neighbors. This ‘small neighborhood’ will work as a unit that decides the residential block. To develop the social intercourse in Mariahoeve, collective spaces were planned for those units, which will not be easily exposed to unspecified individuals. Throughout these, the collective space will provide the room for communication among neighbors. It would bring the concept of ‘neighborhood’ back, which has been absent for years in this desolate area.
How to create the neighborhood unit that could provide the sense of belonging to the town? URBAN TRANSFORMATION PROCESS

NEW LAYERED LIBRARY
CAU Bsc 4 (2013.09-12) prof. Yoonkyeong Choi Seoul, South Korea
The project aimed to built a library into hongdae street, where is extremely active and commercial area. To design a library for this characteristic street, it was necessary to rethink of the library program from different angle. As the way to harmonize the library program and Hongdae street, the required activities of the library were rearranged. Based on this rearrangement, the spatial layers of the library were reorganized. Through this process, the project was designed as the new type of library, which could become the spatial prototype; the library for the places where the library program seems not suitable.
How to design the library on the site where the library program is not suitable? Hongdae street is one of most famous commercial street where culture and commerce were successively harmonized. Itâ€™s unique character had been formed by young artists.
Site faces main axis of Hongdae street, which is hottest commercial street in Korea.
The average height of Hongdae streetâ€™s building is 5-6F. without tall building.
Ground level in this districtis is functioning as commercial role, attracting people to come.

EPIPHYTE OF MEMORY the new cultural center of Treebeek
After mining collapsed, the identity of Treebeek as the mining town have been diluted. These days, the past and the present of Treebeek are showing a discrepancy between each other. The current social problems of Treebeek such as loneliness and loss of identity are caused from this dissonance. For these reasons, this project suggested the way utilizing St Barbaraâ€™s church as the new cultural center of Treebeek as the mediator which correlate the remembrance of the past and the new memory of the present. This building could be the new basis for the memory of the future, which will be accumulated in the next generation of Treebeek.
“Let St Barbara’s church grows in the environment of Treebeek” Epiphyte Architecture Epiphyte architecture is a design methodology that ‘adding new architectural elements onto existing buildings and creating complementary and symbiotic effects through their organic relations.’ Through this methodology, it would be able to set the new relationship between St Barbara church and the new intervention as an equal relationship instead of hierarchical one.
To link the past and the present of the town, the essential part was to balance between keeping the church’s characteristics and adding the new intervention with community center program.
Encounter of Old & New
The design range of the project is modifying the existing house and creating the new intervention of accommodating the new program. The old church will be preserved at it had been, and will be used as large flexible space.
Through the contrast between the walls of the old church and the new intervention, users could feel the timeness while walking along the existing wall

Transition between In/Out, Old/New
By transition spaces, the new intervention could coexist not only with the existing church but with the greenery on the east and the cemetery on the North.
Related to the transition between Old and New, various types of spaces with different characters were arranged, which would provide â€˜architectural promenadeâ€™ by spatial sequence

prof. Woohyeon Yang Seoul, South Korea
Apgujeongdong is one of the most luxurious and wealthy place in Korea and is very commercial place which attracts many people. As the subject of this project was ‘commercial complex’, the symbolic character and current circumstances of this site was important material for this project. The project was proceeded under the purpose of improving commercialization of this site. By analysing both macroscopic and regional viewpoint, I set four design strategies including extending street, create plaza, and expanding building’s contact surface.
An ‘axis,’ acrossing the site, is connecting both popular commertial area in Seoul
City’s context is based on ‘road’ and there are no place functioning as community place for public
Many ‘node,’ such as subway or bus station, are not harmonized with the site’s context
By accumulating, the street is extended vertically. This vertical street is in the commercial axis, and it will attract people’s flow into commercial complex.
Since there are only roads in Apgujeong’s without any suitable spacious rest place for public, I planned to compose this site as ‘plaza’.
Collage of Programs the complex is consists of various programs that could attract people to come to this place. Through coexistence of these programs, this place would be the ‘collage plaza.’

The subject of the studio was ‘eco-friendly school’. Therefore, the design was proceeded under the purpose of providing green community place for students and locals. Also, as the starting point of design, the relationship between educational architecture and education system was strongly considered. So the project was proceeded based on its own education curriculum and materialized data of required programs, etc. In this regard, the ultimate goal of this project was to harmonize architectural design, sustainability, educational background; to realize the belief that ‘architecture space have to include social and cultural surroundings’.

This project was proceeded under the subject of ‘Adapted Reuse’. I aimed to reflect the urban context of Jongno in architectural design. By strategies for revitalization, I purposed not only mere adapted reuse of existing building but also to make my building to be a seed of ‘revitalization’ of this area. Also, by applying Korean traditional architectural language to design, this building would represent the historical context of this site.

Korean War Memorial Park
how should Korean War be remembered after the unification of South and North Korea? COUNTER MONUMENTALITY Korean war and separation are not to commemorate, but to be embarrassed and to be remorsed. Therefore, it should not be beautified and wrapped in good. It should allow us to see how painful these memories were. Panmunjom is the symbolic place where could symbolize the â€˜separation.â€™ The honest description of pain from Korean War on this place will ironically present the value of peace. By marking the main battles points and drawing lines between Panmunjom and the points chronologically, the line becomes a memorial path, inscribing the history of Korean War on Panmunjom. Through this line, visiters would walk along the history of Korean War.

The site is Gangnam area where is surrounded by big scale of apartment buildings. Therefore, it was important not only to follow the existing context but also to break the monotonous huge grain of the site. For this reason, the purpose of the project is to create village-like cultural center. Related to this goal, we planned to scatter small cultural facilities around the big one. Through harmonizing these different types and scales of facilities, it would be able to create synergy effect between them and to enlarge cultural influence to the surroundings.

EPIPHYTE SEOUL ; Re-constructing Seunsangga Citywalk
The project was held for the international competition for Re-structuring Seunsangga CityWalk. Alternative Architecture Lab(A.A.L.) participated in the team, mainly dealt with the whole general concept and architectural design parts. I, as a junior researcher of A.A.L., aid my effort on the investigation of the site analysis, the idea of Epiphyte, and architectural strategies. Also, as part of the design team, I drew the several drawings and participated in diagram works. After the competition, the idea of ‘Epiphyte’ had been improved with my individual research, and it the result was my master thesis, ‘Epiphyte architecture: a study on an alternative method as architectural regeneration,’ which also affected to Msc2 course project, ‘Epiphyte of Memory.’ In this regards, this project not only proofs my experience in the competition of professional field but also shows my ability in combining research and design works.
5 strategies of Epiphyte Urbanism are proposed at Seun to reconnect separated urban fabrics and revitalize the underused mega-structure.
EX TRA EXPERIENCES Besides the internship in architectural offices, I made various kinds of working experiences as a researcher of AAL(Alternative Architecture Lab) in Chungang University. Those experiences include not only architectural field, but other areas such as administration of architecture competition or exhibition. Most of those work were done under the collaboration with Seoul metropolitan goverment
