Since the onset of the global financial crisis, the conditions of architectural practice in Korea have fundamentally changed. This new environment has been a seedbed of architectural creativity, particularly for those seeking to establish a foothold in a competitive market. Young, innovative architects have responded with a combination of resourcefulness, sophistication, and toughness in their interventions into site, programme, materials, and fabrication. Presenting the work of nine architects (JOHO architecture, UTAA company, and others), two photographers, and a team of designers, this book is a critical overview of the contemporary conditions of Korean architecture.
