    comparing the Dongnakdong Hall to the Villa Rotunda won’t achieve much.

    I like the landscaping and the Roh Moo-hyun memorial, despite the fact it looks like a giant slice of pizza. The buildings seem derivative of famous California houses from the fifties and sixties. Who hasn’t seen glass walls before? Meh.

    There is no relationship between the floor plan
    of the first house (Toechon) and the land it’s built on. When the designer walled the
    boundary lines they created a form but the form has no value. Why create a
    space with walls and then disregard that space? I don’t see much respect for the building, it’s not built to last
    for hundreds of years beyond the designer’s death. It’s more like a toy
    designed by a child who has not yet realized that when you design a structure
    you are responsible for creating a living creature and the prime of its life is
    150 years down the road. What you want as an architect is meaningless, you
    have to sacrifice yourself for the house.

    Buildings never do last long in Korea. Most of Korea’s tradition palaces and monuments etc etc have all been knocked down several times and rebuilt several times.
