Architecture Competition Tiny Kiwi Meditation Cabin Clients Favorite winner – INHA TECHNICAL COLLEGE

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the Clients Favorite winner of our “Tiny Kiwi Meditation Cabin” competition – Dabeen Kim from South Korea!

Dabeen Kim from South Korea

I am a senior student, majoring in indoor architecture at the Inha Technical College located in Incheon, Korea for my bachelor's degree.

 The advice of professors at school, travel, magazines, and what I've seen on the Internet were all inspirational and broke the framework of common sense for me. These created inspiration not only in architecture, but also in various other ways.

 Therefore, I always feel thirsty for new influences and try to be a person who quenches this thirst through architecture.

Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance, what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where the company/ individuals have been involved?

For something new, I think the message is more important than limiting the size. Always challenge your potential with new themes and penetrating concepts, as this leads to unexpectedly good results.

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

Since I was a child, I have been fascinated by the fact that architecture not only separates human space, but also influences movement and emotion. I think architecture is the biggest thing that closely influences people for 24/7. Architects think that buildings built out of necessity are the conductors that encourage people to have a good influence. I want to make something that is sustainable and can inspire and positively affect as many people as possible.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

Architecture competitions have various themes and limited preferences. The design that I create through the storytelling and penetrating concepts awaken potential creativity. Projects that emerge through many concerns and discussions help the further growth of participants and demonstrate their potential for development.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture competitions?

It's a good opportunity not only for others, but also for those who want to prove to themselves whether they're doing what they're doing. Let's get started!
