Byoung Cho aims to make each of his buildings `so it looks like it's not designed at all, it's just there'. Influenced by Korea's rich aesthetic tradition, Cho utilizes understated forms to create serene buildings that yield powerful and subtle experiences for their inhabitants. His work focuses on seemingly simple structures and has a strong regard for nature and sustainability. He has created many iconic buildings, art and cultural centres, schools, health facilities and residences throughout Korea, Japan and the United States. This book features over 25 of Cho's most highly acclaimed projects, including Twin Trees (2010), his instantly iconic towers located adjacent to the 14th-century royal Gyeongbok Palace in Seoul. The projects are accompanied throughout by sketches and plans, providing a comprehensive insight into the making of these buildings. Byoung Cho offers an engaging and indepth overview of one of the most creative and deeply thoughtful designers working today. It will inspire architects, architectural students and anyone interested in sustainability and the built environment.
