Simplicity, tradition and a deep respect for all things natural--these are the essential elements of Korean design underpinning the nation's fast-growing creative scene.
Influences from China, Japan and the West have filtered into Korea, but the peninsula has always maintained its own identity. Spatial, spiritual and material qualities are reflected in the simple beauty of its architecture, while classic objects with a Korean aesthetic are used with panache in interior decor.
This is the first book to document Korea's architecture and design scene. Authors Marcia Iwatate and Kim Unsoo present 24 exceptional homes, studios and heritage projects. Ranging from vernacular to cutting-edge contemporary, these showcase the nation's constant drive to invent and create.
