crete apartment complex stands along Jungnang Creek. We propose another artificial forest alongside to trees and nature of the neighborhood park.
It is not a dominant architecture, but the space expands one's imagination. Its shape is a combination of nature and concentric encounters, symbolized as overlapping mountains.
The frame is not isolated triangles, but a frame of communication that relies on each other. This creates natural and original architectural prototype, which symbolizes communication, nature, children and adults.
The space unit is the book shelf, which is the wall itself. The shelf composes the space and becomes a partition at the same time. Throughout the history the wall served as a separator of the space. In Hannae Library, however, the wall becomes the labyrinth that flows through the space, connecting and disconnecting continuously. The bookshelf integrates space, furniture, and structure together. This is a small library with the floor area under 330qm, but the visitors experience various spatial aspects inside. The library overcomes its limitation in terms of size and develops itself into a multi-functional space through different conditions. The gable roof is the continuation of the wall(book shelf) and forms threshold through varying heights. Natural light falls inside through this point. The labyrinth stimulates the imagination and creativity of children meandering through the library.

Curriculum studio / partecipanteWhen we found the Group UnSangDong, our focus was forming a creative and interactive map of operative network that can embrace not just buildings, but all possible fields that can generate interesting feedbacks with architectural mode. These feedbacks play critical role in establishing cultural networks that surround the Group UnSangDong.
The architectural practice of UnSangDong has been carried out in similar manner in which the framework of projects are set up for continuous interaction between culture and architecture in fluidity. We call this attitude “working on cultural cracks”. As if someone who is rediscovering the slit of air squeezing through the gap between the pieces in the armor, we seek architectural desires oozing through the cultural gap in-between the pieces of our society, or desires for finding ways to directly transcribe from physical space to cultural space.
