Javier Bravo DV Offices is a project that aims to activate the existing urban layer with a hybrid program mostly dedicated to office equipment but providing a neutral configuration that allo...

Seoul Photographic Art Museum

Concept. We depart from the basic idea that a Photographic Art Museum should be a celebration of light and how space and architecture can be crafted by the multiplicity of atmospheres and effects it is able to create when traveling through and into materials. Our proposal seeks to provide an inspiring journey through different light atmospheres which are in tune with the specific purpose of each space. Form. After studying the tension between the deconstructed orthogonal forms of the 50 Plus Campus and the futuristic shape of the RSM, we opted for a more nuanced approach and settled with a cubical shaped building. This cube is then lifted on the corners welcoming visitors into a triangulated shaped lobby. The journey through the building... En savoir plus
