Résumé


The second book in the My Life as an Architect series, looking at the buildings that have shaped the practice and outlook of the celebrated Korean architect Byoung Cho.
Byoung Cho is Korea's leading architect, with almost three decades of experience shaping the city where he grew up and still lives.
This companion to Kengo Kuma: My Life as an Architect in Tokyo presents twenty-nine portraits of the buildings and districts of Seoul that have most influenced Cho, from a more than six-hundred-year-old palace to the Gangnam district made infamous by the K-pop hit, a fourteen-meter-square concrete box, and a number of his own designs.
Byoung Cho mixes personal asides with architectural and historical detail to build up a multilayered picture of the city. Lively texts are interspersed with the architect's own drawings and elegant photographs printed with a sepia tint.
62 color illustrations.
