Three-box House by Byoung Cho

As with many of Cho’s works, the Three-box House is driven by three dichotomies: the public and the private, the urban and the natural, the open and the bound. Responding to the specific site’s characteristics, Cho composed the house as three concrete boxes, positioned in order to exploit changes in levels while providing separation from their busy surroundings.

The best perk of working out of the National Library (by far, although are quite a few) is being able to time out and pore over some brilliant architectural books. Today’s pick: Byoung Cho’s new monograph.
