Founded by HyoMan Kim, IROJE KHM Architects are pioneers of Korean architectural innovation. The award-winning firm takes a truly virtuous approach to architecture, merging traditional Korean ideals with contemporary design, while endeavoring to understand and apply the true essence of the environments they work with. As part of the Leading Architects
series this book showcases IROJE's jaw-dropping structures and truly unique concepts through an array of visually rich photography, while highlighting the firm's development over the course of 20 years. Featuring both residential and commercial projects that challenge western architectural conventions, IROJE's work is often a fantastical representation of natural, visual and spatial abstractions. Read acclaimed writer Philip Jodidio's account of HyoMan Kim's almost transcendental approach to the architectural process, as well as JongGun Lee's explorative essay on the status of Korean architecture and HyoMan Kim's impressive career, including time spent with master Korean architect, Su Geun Kim. This new title is an insightful journey through two decades of IROJE KHM Architects' unique architectural realm, and HyoMan Kim's vision for highlighting the value of Korean cultural themes in architecture around the world.
