Objective

Design Point of View

I have developed a desire for aesthetic expression from a very young age. My grandfather, a renowned sculptor and painter whose designs are represented in a majority of the monuments in Korea, was an inspiration to me as I was growing up. Through his works, I have come to appreciate the beauty and value of design.

Through my formal architectural education and experience, I have been developing my own design perspectives to further nurture this inspiration. Design is the result of an endless series of tenacious questioning in order to seek an appropriate value in order to create positive changes in the human experience, and to improveour environment. Through this process, we can find the best and most memorable solution to serve these purposes.
