Description - IROJE KHM Architects by HyoMan Kim

Founded by HyoMan Kim, IROJE KHM Architects are pioneers of Korean architectural innovation. The award-winning firm takes a truly virtuous approach to architecture, merging traditional Korean ideals with contemporary design, while endeavouring to understand and apply the true essence of the environments they work with. As part of the Leading Architects series this book showcases IROJE's jaw-dropping structures and truly unique concepts through an array of visually rich photography, while highlighting the firm's development over the course of 20 years. Featuring both residential and commercial projects that challenge western architectural conventions, IROJE's work is often a fantastical representation of natural, visual and spatial abstractions. Read acclaimed writer Philip Jodidio's account of HyoMan Kim's almost transcendental approach to the architectural process, as well as JongGun Lee's explorative essay on the status of Korean architecture and HyoMan Kim's impressive career, including time spent with master Korean architect, Su Geun Kim.
