Text description provided by the architects. The project is subtitled Nam-1-gwang-1-ru ("南1光1루", pronounced Namwongwanghallu), as an amalgamation of Namwon (location) and Gwanghallu (a nearby 17th century Nugak, an elevated open-air house typology, registered as national heritage).

The pavilion is a participatory project, installed through public workshops incorporating various ideas. Similar to a Nugak, it is primarily a place to take a break, while suggesting a different perspective of looking (or not looking) at the city. The roof is open to the stars and the winds, and the walls become a temporary exhibition space for public artwork. The pavilion can be split into four units, and they can be configured in various ways to adapt to the vibrant and diverse culture of Yegaram Street.

Namwon Pavilion Workshop
The workshop was scheduled for three weeks, composed of Dankook University's project team and 25 local high school students from Namwon. Each week, we tested out various scenarios, with everyone participating in the design and build process with hopes that this pavilion would become a place to tell their personal experiences. Since its installation, it had been used as an exhibition booth for the 2015 Chunhyang Festival, as well as the backdrop for many street performances on Yegaram. It had also received an Award of Excellence for the 2015 National Public Design Awards, particularly for its integration of education and public participation in its design.
