NLCS ARCSOC is preparing a foamboard concept architecture exhibition during the next arts week. The exhibition will not only consist of the works of the society members but also those who are willing to participate in the ARCSOC Exploration session during Arts week. Until this moment, ARCSOC members have worked slowly throughoutthe year to create their 50:1 scale foamboard models, which will be developed further for exhibitions.
The members explain their motives and concepts of the models.
Yongwon Cho: My architecture model was influenced by Hundertwasser: the architect who used nature as part of this architecture. My model is arranged with 2 floors. The first floor is mainly storage, parking lot, and the entrance. The second floor is designed to receive as much sunlight as possible and to grow plants in the empty space left to the living space.
Jinu Chun: Inspired by the deconstructive architecture in the postmodern era, this building reflects the form of a plain demolished building with the contrasting beauty of the night sky of Jeju. Using led lights to represent the stars, this building is intended to be used as a cafe or a restaurant in a tourist destination for people looking for unique places to visit.
Seok Hyun Moon: This architecture is designed to be constructed inside a central city, like a landmark. I have referred to many other architectural constructions to acknowledge how big my architecture should be, where the architecture should be constructed, and even how it should look to attract tourists or citizens. It is a 50-floor building, in which the emporium is placed on the first few floors, mixed up of many different stores, various from GS24 to luxury brands.
Siyeol Choi: Initially, the idea was to create a horizontal ferry wheel to provide both private and public spaces in a library. Through multiple steps of modifications, the result was a gear look-alike model. The use of area is divided using skip floors and the cogs are for the users that want private areas. Exploiting the circular shape of the library, the ceiling is projected to turn according to the seasons, controlling the amount of solar insolation.
Louie Tae, Siyeol Choi: The architecture is inspired by the organic structure of cacti, symbolic of survival under harsh conditions. The design has assumed a dystopian world that suffers food scarcity and overpopulation. The main objective is an effective distribution of goods and services to each household. A vertical tunnel that branches to each house that resembles a spine is the dropping zone, just as the xylem and phloem of a cacti transport nutritions from and to the spines.
