Out of the Ordinary - Award Winning Works by Young Korean Architects  Junghyun Park & Hyungmin Pai (ed.)

Since the global financial crisis of 2008, the conditions of architectural practice in Korea have fundamentally changed. This new environment has also been a seedbed of architectural creativity, particularly for young architects seeking to establish their foothold in a competitive market. Young innovative architects have responded with a combination of resourcefulness, sophistication and toughness in their interventions into the site and program and into materials and fabrication. Presenting the work of nine architects, two photographers, and a team of designers, Out of the Ordinary is a critical presentation of the contemporary conditions of Korean architecture.

Presenting works by: Chae-Pereira architects, D-LIM architects, IAEO architekten, JOHO architecture, JYA-RCHITECTS, lokaldesign, OUJAE architects, UTAA company, WISE architecture, the photographers Kyungsub Shin & Thierry Sauvage, the designers Haecheon Park & Eunjoo Hong and Hyungjae Kim.
