We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winner for our "Tokyo Urban Meditation Cabins" competition – Jaesung Yoon from South Korea!

Honorable mention winner from South Korea

I graduated from Kaywon University of Arts & Design after studying interior design for 3 years and architectural interior for 1 year. This is the first overseas competition that I challenged alone in the last semester.

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?

By meditation The most important point when working on this project was the lifestyle of Tokyo residents. A survey of what these people use the most in real life and where they visit the most influenced this project.

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

I think architecture is a vessel that can contain parts necessary for humans such as history, culture, and nature. Architects should make this vessel sustainable.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

It is because I am curious about the thoughts of people in other cultures and want to share them.

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