These are the questions that Korean architect Hoon Moon typically throws out: ‘Why so serious? Why not laugh more?’ Moon-Hoon’s works are home to a wide array of faces. Panorama House appears to be an accordion, and Rock It Suda looks like spermatozoa. He shows a mysterious spacecraft (ongdalsam) and a Gothic castle (Sangsang Museum). Some may burst out laughing at the Darth Vader image overlying Play House. However we have to keep in mind that this reaction is what the architect fully expects. We begin to wonder, then, what causes the laughter. Is the source of this laughter satire? The answer is yes; the source of merriment in Moon-Hoon’s work is satire. Now, let me ask another question: Is it possible to satirize political and social issues through architecture? Because the various facets of his works do not seem relevant to contemporary political and social issues. Save this picture!© Namgoong SunHowever, are his works really irrelevant to current political and social issues? Let us go back to the first questions I raised. Moon-Hoon derides Korean architecture as Malddugi (of the ruled class) and sneers at Yangban (the ruling class) in Bongsan Talchum, a traditional Korean mask dance. Korean architecture could exist as a cross section of Korean society, as the Yangban class has revealed contradictions in the social culture of that time. A satire should expose social contradictions in a direct or in direct way. It is necessary to show a conflict between the Yangban and Maddugi. However, with regards to social and political aspects, Moon-Hoon reminds very personal. He evokes Korean architecture’s stagnancy at a very personal level. His architecture relies on his own taste, personal experiences, and assumptions.Save this picture!© Namgoong SunIt is true that some people burst out laughing at his work because of this personal approach; however, we have to remember that partiality comes from a very personal stance. There is no partiality without an individual ‘I.’ Our society usually forgets this point, and there has been no place for ‘I’ in Korean architecture. Until now, Korean architecture has been led by insubstantial abstract apparitions, such as modernism, de-constructivism, and minimalism, not by an individual. The reason that I consider these architectural trends as apparitions is that they are not relevant to ‘I’ at all. Every point of view is established based only upon a subjective individual, ‘I’, which is formed by external conditions such as land, climate, culture, customs, biological nature, and as on. Subjectivity and objectivity consist in the individual. Objectivity refers to the stats of objects rearranged by the individual’s logic as subjectivity that is embodied in these objects. Objectivity never means a status as it is. Until now, there has been an almost complete lack of awareness of individual. This means that there has been no ground for subjectivity or objectivity. This point corresponds to the question that Moon-Hoon threw out earlier regarding Korean architecture. He suggests starting off with a clean slate, forgetting modernism or tradition. He invites us to tell our own stories starting from ‘I.’ Through his ambitious attempt, I read Moon-Hoon’s architecture. Inchworm House, an epithet that I applied to Visang House, appears to be measuring something. One end touches the ground, and the other end stands straight into the sky. It was easy to find Moon-Hoon’s architecture in Angol, where a site was under a process of development and prepared for housing. I found two structures that seemed like his work. One seemed to wear a mask that you would only see in special effects cinematography, and the other one was Inchworm House. While making a phone call standing halfway between these two houses, I glimpsed a slight movement in Inchworm house. Afterwards, I discovered that both houses were Moon-Hoon’s works. The bent, V-shaped part of the house that looked like the curve of an inchworm at first glance appears somewhat contrived as it seems to be superficially forced to make up its own facade. However, the function of this house is closely connected to the features of the façade itself. The narrative of Inchworm House starts with the southern part of the long living room that looks like the end of inchworm. The facial impression of the house extends to the living room, giving us the feeling that we are in the inchworm’s stomach. The windows arranged in a form of a turned V on the façade of the living room seem to move, as if intended, as the light changes. The eastern wall appears to be an inchworm’s head, lifted straight up as if measure something. This wall is erected up to the second floor. These images are all reflective of an inchworm and those national images associated with it. Walking up the stair from the living room to the second floor, the allusions made to an inchworms are replaced by an elevated spatial perception and height. At the half landing on the stairs sits an ambiguous space, which is currently used as a dressing room, but was actually designed to be a future nursery. The stairs lead to an attic room above this space. If you go up to attic, you will see a corridor that stretches to the eastern wall of the living room, which goes up to the second floor. This corridor leads to the bedroom. There is another passage leading to this space. It leads from the baby’s room to the bedroom though the bathroom. The path serves as a bathroom. In other words, there are two entrances to the bedroom, though a corridor corresponding to the eastern wall of the living room and through a passage that starts from the baby’s room and passes through the bathroom. If you come out from the bedroom, you will see a small interior terrace and a high wall at the opposite. You will notice, at a glance, that the inside of the eastern wall servers as a screen. It is well within comprehension that this terrace is like the royal box of Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth. You can go up to the attic from this terrace as well. Moon-Hoon placed an Oriental painting on this terrace, which can be seen through the window frame. This house has an individual story, which makes it like a personal opera house for the couple. The space that seems to rise continuously like sound reverberations, forming a connection between the rooms and the attic is its face.Save this picture!© Namgoong SunInchworm house has the power to expose the faces and spaces of the building, creating a story in the erasure of faces in the spaces, and making us aware of the connection between them. This house is full of small but varied spaces. Moon-Hoon present a new way of creating space that Korean architecture has missed or has not yet experienced, and he demands that we read spaces in an altogether new way. To wish that this experiment extends to the exterior space is to support him, not to express a lament for something missing. On my way out of the front door, I saw a structure engraved with the shape of a human body which reminded me of a Procrustean bed. It evoked mirth, and I felt transported, as if my head had been cut clean off.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessMilan Design Week 2013: Energetic Energies for Panasonic / Akihisa HirataArchitecture News2013 ‘Folly’ Competition Winner: tree wood by Toshihiro OkiAwarded Competition Share Projects Vi-Sang House / Moon HoonSave this projectSaveVi-Sang House / Moon Hoon Year: CopyHouses•South Korea Save this picture!© Namgoong Sun+ 42 Share 2011 “COPY” South Korea CopyAbout this officeMoon HoonOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesSouth KoreaPublished on April 09, 2013Cite: “Vi-Sang House / Moon Hoon” 09 Apr 2013.

Flower House involved the remodelling of a small old house to provide space to accommodate a single client. The scheme included the refurbishment of the existing ground floor, demolished of the 1st floor as well as the construction of a new one. The building is set within heritage site, which has drawn out a unique response to the history and settings. The building geometry, orientation and size is driven by the site constraintsSave this picture!© João FerrandAt the site, the existing buildings are idiosyncratic of their type, with flank elevations and roof profiles, which run the breadth of the neighborhood of Foz Velha. These buildings are detailed in a utilitarian manner, with an honesty of material and detailing one would expect. In responding to this condition, the design of the new building make clear reference to their historical parts. A two storey dwelling with character and personality, respectful of the existing neighborhood, and taking advantage of the views. Save this picture!© João FerrandIn the interior the project was aimed at creating a series of flowing, contemporary spaces, allowing a greater degree of flexibility, linking the internal spaces of the ground floor in just one: living, dining and kitchen. Two different stairs ensures the connectivity between ground floor living spaces and upper floors of bedrooms and study space.Save this picture!© João FerrandThe core ambition of the scheme was to create a dwelling, which, over time, would come to reflect an approach to contemporary renovation work and create a flexible environment for who will live there.Save this picture!© João FerrandAccessible via a path with only 2 m wide, flanked by old houses, externally, the building is wrapped in a homogenous white skin, which wraps up from the landscape. This relationship of building to street retains those historic associations described, and similarly allows for a contemporary sculptural form to sit comfortably within its context. “COPY” CopyAbout this officeEZZOOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPortoHousesPortugalPublished on December 18, 2013Cite: “Flower House / EZZO” 18 Dec 2013.

This project set out to provide a demonstration of how a generous family home could be constructed on a small inner city block. It set out to show how a small block could still have a generous amount of external spaces for living and gardens and it also wanted to challenge the notion that architecturally design houses were unaffordable. Finally we wanted to design a house that privileged the spaces for people over the spaces for cars. No lock up garage was provided in this design but rather a two car parking area off the rear right of way.Save this picture!© Robert FrithThe site for this project is a rear sub-divided block in inner suburban Perth.

Zellweger Park, a former industrial site in Uster, Switzerland, has been converted into a mixed-use neighborhood featuring high-quality architecture and contemporary art. Within this framework, Herzog & de Meuron have completed a building containing 32 apartments in the mid-range price segment. It is adjacent to the administrative headquarters and showroom pavilion of Zellweger Luwa, designed in the 1960s by the Swiss architect Roland Rohn.Save this picture!© Erica OvermeerThe eight-story cube is situated in the middle of the park on the shores of the Herterweiher. It stands at an angle to the neighboring buildings to maximize the orientation toward the sun. The apartments, with a square ground plan, are placed in the corners one above the other, affording views in two directions of Uster Castle, the Herterweiher pond, Lake Greifensee and the Alps. The building as a whole seems to be hovering above the level of the public park, ensuring privacy for the ground floor tenants.Save this picture!© Erica OvermeerThe circulation typology in this building provides a great measure of privacy and vibrant contact with the natural surroundings. The apartments are each accessed individually through two lifts in middle of the building, which has no shared hallways. The staircases are placed outside at the four corners of the building in combination with spacious balconies, linking each apartment directly to the park. These round towers are each positioned differently to maximize both sunlight and discretion for tenants. When they come from the park, they can use the stairwell to access their apartments via the balconies: large, crescent-shaped loggias, fitted with curtains, like an additional room, with railings consisting of white wooden picket fences created by the artist Erik Steinbrecher.Save this picture!© Erica OvermeerThe façade, a concrete grid throughout, was poured using the most inexpensive formwork. The expression of the concrete is raw and mistakes were corrected only if technically necessary. The windows of aluminum and wood allow considerable sunlight into the deep apartments and afford magnificent views of the old trees and the neighboring buildings across the pond and into the park. Despite energy efficiency codes, it was possible to insert large picture windows because the building is a cube and as such very compact.Save this picture!© Erica OvermeerThe spaciousness of the apartments is generated by an open floor plan with a flowing sequence of spaces; there are no halls inside the apartments either. All of the rooms are accessed from the centrally located open kitchen. There are two types of apartments with 4 1⁄2 and 5 1⁄2 rooms respectively.Save this picture!© Erica OvermeerThe interior walls of concrete or masonry are all loadbearing. Time-tested, high-quality materials typically available in Switzerland have been used throughout: Forster kitchens, strip flooring, white painted stucco walls, and fair-faced concrete ceilings. The bathrooms are tiled. The sturdy shell of the building, the solid fittings and the down-to-earth detailing resonate with the character of the former industrial site.Project gallerySee allShow lessProject locationAddress:Uster, SwitzerlandLocation to be used only as a reference.

Further important design references were the timelessly modern industrial buildings by Albert Kahn, including his Detroit building for the Packard Motor Car Company.Save this picture!© Stefan MüllerUrban planning | Interior organization.Regarding urban planning, the five- to seven-story building closes the chamfered border of the square and the perspective alongside Oranienstrasse. The new building represents the historical, sub-divided plot layout of the pre-existing city structure: It is divided into three segments, each with different floor heights.Save this picture!© Stefan MüllerThe most prominent, corner building section angled towards Moritzplatz boasts generous ceiling heights and a spacious entrance area; an intermediate building abuts split-level to this corner structure, situated alongside Oranienstrasse and with reduced, functional floor heights; a narrow passage building to Elsnerhaus approaches the visual language of the extant building’s façade structure.Save this picture!© Stefan MüllerReceding back from both sides of the building, a penthouse rises above the building sections on Oranienstrasse, meeting the height of Elsnerhaus.

In leaping between different floor heights, a variegated grid pattern is created.Save this picture!© Stefan MüllerOn the upper floors, the resulting fields are filled with solid dark-grey granite panels. Height variances among the natural stone slabs, as well as the directional shifts within their diagonal grain, emphasize the intersections of the construction, while the variably proportioned recesses within the concrete grid mediate the transitions between the neighboring buildings.Save this picture!© Ina Reinecke/ Barkow LeibingerThe façade on the courtyard side is based on the same design principle, but maintains a different appearance via loggias and greenery through integrated planting troughs: over the course of time, the strict concrete structure will be overgrown by climbing plants.
