Spain-Korea Best Architecture
Appearing with the exhibition co-hosted by the Architectural Design Institute of Korea (ADIK) and the Colegio Oficial de Arquitectos de Madrid (COAM), this volume serves to establish a framework for the discussion of architectural themes, approaches, and practices between two apparently very different contexts: South Korea and Spain. The selected projects are split into basic functional categories such as housing, commercial, education, cultural, and others, which in turn offers a basis for comparison. An underlying question is whether local meaning and interpretations can be identified in the works, despite globalisation and the shared challenges facing societies worldwide.
