Honorable mention from South Korea

We are all students enrolled in Sejong University's Master's in Architecture. With like-minded students, we are free to do the projects we want to do and build our own architecture.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Hyogeun: The architecture, I think, is an architecture that conforms to nature.

Jaehyeon: Because this job always gives the possibility to make new designs. Architects should lead the world in a good direction.

Soowon: Bringing out the maximum effect with the minimum gesture.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

The subject of death and life was interesting.
