Fields and hills stretching widely across the horizon—nothing special stood out at all. How should architecture exist here, on this land, a place that already delivers a sense of affluence just by looking at it? Should a building shout out loud, whisper metaphorically, or remain silent, uttering barely a word? Recently, Lee Sangdae (principal, Spaceyeon Architects) designed three series of projects located in a typical rural landscape. The concern that began with the landscape has led to the building envelope, and to material exploration. The use of material is harmonized with the use of light, newly defining the interior space. When observing this meaningful series of works, encountered over a long period of time, let’s read into the metaphoric and emotional architectural language of the architect Lee Sangdae.
