Especially, Library space is connecting two space not only optical but acoustic/scent. And every window was designed to frame the great landscape in a different position with different size. The mass design was design to assimilate with natural surroundings, which are rocky mountain. Lastly, Mongdang is multiple meanings for “shortness” as well as “Dreaming House” in Korea. It could be something against the trend that people regard the house as only the money in Korea.
