This project starts with my assumption of future living. In 2060, although our technology is improving evolutionally and our society is moving constantly, our way of life will not be changed a lot. We will still miss our real nature, smell of people, and memories of 2014 Interior Design Studio, 30th annual Architecture in Perspective of ASAI

Exterior view from the outside. For the preservation, the exterior structure remains. It won’t be affected by the occupant. Here, I fill in the interior, and set up the pavilion. As shown below, I use wood with high technology although the material traditionally considered the technology of the past. While the existed Steel and glass, it seems represent modern technology, it are actually product of the past. I thought paradoxically.

The aim of this project is to make a calm-wavy guest house as you can see on the title of the project. As you can easily recognize with geographic location, people are able to look at the beautiful beach from the site on the cliff, where isn’t so high. Moreover, when I designed this project that someone stands on the site, he or she can maximize that feel sunshine of beach, the preson can feel changing wind directions of nights and days, and the crash sounds of the wave from the side of the cliff. In addition, I want to make a plan to be remained the most of the existed programs that is some of parking lots, the road as well, in order to secure the space for visitors who visit on Sam Fiszman park. Obviously this project is employed ten standard containers without any structural distortions. Yet, I’ve designed rotating ninety degrees of four containers in order to make gaps of the levels among rooms. It could make circulations of wind, passing through sunlight into the public spaces like living room, dining room, kitchen, home office, and halls. This levels and open space are planed not only visual purpose, but also functional reasons.

BOUNDARIES OF ROUTINE AND NON-ROUTINE I am pondering that the place need a riot. Recovering a historical place should lots of consideration. A renovation method has been picked up by me which is only remained the out side form of the original buildings like façade, and opening. In addition, the insides are filled with new shape of design by each program in order to overcome the financial difficulties on the town, to prevent possible seismic activities, and also to convey warm feeling to users. I don’t choose one that destroys all of the building and reconstructs new one. Because most of visitors are attracted by the old roman city atmosphere, not because of new fancy architectures. I don’t want betray those tourists who has expects the moods. Indeed, I hope to give a presents with surprising effects. While a visitor is loitering about the town, she/he is faced with unexpected super high-tech stylish inside of building. It could be unforgettable memory. The effects of surprising may be able to lug more tourist attraction, It possibility means better economic condition. Not only tourist attraction, but also the new design considers other seismic activities. Even if the outside-form of building was collapsed by earthquake, the inside-form would not be affected by the activities. Also when you rebuild the building which was damaged, it could pay less money, beside no one harts. Lastly, I hope to deliver to the space user a warm feeling of the interior space covered with soft-round shape of wall. The new concept of design, that I’ve suggested, has gotten inspired with a form of seed and womb. On the condition that the old form of building means a cover for protection the inside, the new shape of inside signify a puritanical living things. Those meaning could match for the agriculture and nanotech research laboratory which are the local government has interested in. Thus, I believe that suggesting a new form of design with the old structure can bring jubilant consequence.

This project is a real project that a Buddhist temple Gilsangsa is planning as a “clean and fragrant hall.” in Sungbukgu, Seoul in South Korea. The “clean and fragrant hall” tries to achieve virtue practice into reality - clean and fragrant world, building, nature and, mind. Such design place focused on their virtue practicing into realty.

“The world is clean and fragrant” that is expressed by the use of bricks in the architecture. The final design of this project was selected from the designs of each 7 studio personnel, whom designed separately; and split the final interior design was again divided into seven separate designs and I designed the construction plan, courtyard, and 1st floor lobby area by myself.

such as the BARK
This is an Open Library project in front of Seoul-si Jongmyo Park. It becomes passages space between the road and the park that psychologically connects the senior citizens who are the major users of the park, younger people who use the road, and foreigners who visit the shrine. In order to create sustainable space, one must be act using awareness as the foundation. Awareness is reflection of growing human behavior to an object and tries to limit the growth of program in the space and space users. To achieve the growth, one must accumulate and wait, extract the motive from the bark that contains the concept of patience, and used the meaning of the bark in the form it grew as the design vocabulary. The depth of the bark can be extracted into three stages. Following that, extract the meaning behind the power of the tree growth of the interface and the form was constructed using the method of substituting the direction of the force to transform the space into design elements.

KYUNG IN MUSEUM reprograming project
This project keeps the Korean traditional style of construction and suggests the new art gallery’s concept of the 21st century which is different from the one of the 20th century. The modern museum has no boundaries between writers and viewers and viewers have been making a museum as a writer. In this sense, it tries to provide the public with the creation, exhibition and appreciation of calligraphy as a creative place not just for simply participating place. Calligraphy has sprit in it. The sprit is a mental relationship that finds inner side of me and feels the human relationship with others between me and society. In order to complete a stoke of calligraphy, you should try a line a thousand, million time. For this space, I try to suggest a space that made of million lines to fit to the theory of form and line for this program.

The problem of communication between human beings and environment is serious. I am suggesting “Plug in 4D city” to solve the problem of human beings between city, atmosphere, and other people who lives in some buildings in a city. The modern city is rising rapidly due to advanced construction technolog and individual personalization. Such situation can be seen not just in South Korea’s capital Seoul, but also in other countries who are rapidly developing in the world. “Plug in 4D city,” to solve the communication problems of the existing cities, would provide as a link with the existing buildings in the city and environment. This is trying to change the image of the cities, which the cities are currently represented by steel and concrete, by encounters with nature and be able to communicate with

LINK AND FLAT CITY ‘Link & Flat city’ is the project that shows the new interpretation of the urban landscape and suggests different ideas for separation. Modern city is currently designed to prioritize a vehicle which made for make human being’s life easy over the space for pedestrians. As an example, near Noryangin subway station, Seoul, lots of students from private schools, people to use the fish market, and residents nearby are crossing through the pedestrian overpass without crosswalks or were jaywalking. ‘Link & flat city’ aims to provide pedestrians with crosswalks that look like a park to pass through easily through it and give smooth traffic flow for drivers. The construction is structured 10m over from the ground. The formation consists of 16 locations having Noryangin as a starting point, and combines the shortest lines of each distance. The spatial program has a total of six sections and two roads. The areas consist of markets, self-studying place, resting place, resident participation space, green space, and water space. And the road is divided into one for pedestrians and the other for bikers and provides crosswalks that look like a park.
