In Progress: Daeyang Gallery and House / Steven Holl Architects

© Steven Holl Architects

We’ve just received some news from our friends at Steven Holl Architects regarding the progress of their latest private gallery and residence. Situated in the hillside of the Kangbuk section of , , the project’s geometry is an experimental reaction to a 1967 sketch for a music score by the composer Istvan Anhalt, “Symphony of Modules,” discovered in a book by John Cage titled “Notations”.   This strategy, which runs parallel to a research studio on “the architectonics of music,” results in three separate pavilions connected by a sheet of water that establishes the plane of reference from above and below.

More construction photos, renderings and of course, Holl’s infamous watercolors after the break.

SuperOcean / Ginseng Chicken

Ginseng Chicken‘s latest competition entry for the thematic pavilion of the 2012 Yeosu World Expo in explores the relationship between land, coast, ocean and people.  Entitled SuperOcean, the project features a sampling of the ocean, as if a section was lifted above the surface as a way to allow viewers to explore the secrets the deep sea has to offer.  ”When exploring the question of what type of form best represents the identity of the ocean, we realized that the ocean has very objective and quantitative factors such as depth, surface level and area, but at the same time is a very abstract, even spiritual entity to others,” explained the architects.

More images, diagrams and more about the project after the break.

ROK Navy Museum / G.Lab*


, a department of Gansam Partners in Seoul, was awarded first prize for their design of a Navy Museum in Korea.  The design reflects “the turbulent history of the Korean Navy and the unwavering spirit of the men and women who serve this branch.”  Inspired by the unpredictability of the ocean,  G.Lab*’s form for the museum is an undulating mass that folds.  On the interior, the volume creates a circulation path which weaves and intersects in multiple spaces.

More images and more about the museum after the break.
