South Korea is known for its innovations in technology. Seoul architect Byoung-soo Cho applies South Korea's technological innovation to architecture by experimenting with straight lines, negative space and uniting contrasting materials. Here we spotlight the Earth House, the Four Box House as well as the Concrete Box, all private residences of the minimalist architect.
In the midst of a bustling metropolis, situated mountain-side in the Pyeongchandong district, Cho designed his dream home which he calls the Four Box House. The house combines four disjointed cubed spaces around a tranquil courtyard which acts as a hideaway from the city. Photo by Jeremy Murch.
