With over 500 stunning photographs, this design book reveals the relatively unknown but unique aesthetics of Korea.

Korea Style reveals the intrinsic elements of Korean design; simplicity, moderation, constraint, and a deep respect for all things natural. Despite the filtering of Japanese and Western design ideas into Korea over the millennia, the peninsula has maintained its own identity and is gaining recognition for its own particular "style." Spatial, spiritual and material qualities are reflected in the simple beauty of its architectural design, while classic objects that immediately distinguish themselves as being uniquely Korean are used with distinctive flair in interior design and decoration.

Korea Style is the first book devoted to the country's architecture and interior design-featuring twenty-two exceptional homes, studios and public and heritage buildings. They range from vernacular to cutting-edge creations and are a celebration of the country's natural landscape, arts and crafts and architectural heritage juxtaposed with a drive towards invention, experimentation and individuality.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[Korea Style] is an inspirational piece for both the everyday and the professional student of design." --East West blog
"Don't be fooled into thinking [a commitment to minimalism] means cold or empty. These are rich, textural spaces that make you think about home in a whole new way." --Capital Times
"Iwatate and art exhibitor Unsoo show how vernacular Korean home design and decoration with its regard for "[s]implicity, moderation, constraint, and a deep respect for all things natural" has been incorporated into the 20-plus contemporary commercial and residential buildings visited here." --Library Journal
