Text description provided by the architects. Architectural flower.

A great flower of metal masses, made of a minus curved surface is installed in ARCHI-FIORE as a concept using “pop art” and by doing so, I intended to enhance the identity of commercial buildings.

To respond to the context and to give identity as commercial building, the shape of this project has been curved like flower.

We expect this complex building flower will be the architectural landmark of this town.

Flying street. 

We extended the existing road in front of the site of this project - which is a “vertical town”- consisting in complex programs of architecture, coffee shop, restaurant, office and house.

Dynamic stairways are flying from the 1st floor at front road up to the roof garden at the top of 6th floor, strolling on various routes of this vertical town.

Section 1

We don’t want this complex building to be considered as one building, but into a small town formed by 4 independent buildings.

Dialogue with round gymnasium and curved shape.

The most influential existence of the surrounding site a is huge gymnasium with a round shape in the disorganized surrounding context.

To dialogize with the round mass of the gymnasium, we designed this project as a curved shape which is derived from the minus curve of traditional Korean roof.

Section 2

 The curve of traditional roof of Korea.

We hoped to give this project the identity as commercial building, so we applied a minus curve of traditional Korean roof to be harmonized with the round gymnasium.

And in the house, we floated the curved mass of the family room over the living room, so it looks and feels like a “floating roof” of living room.
