This converted ship installation was designed by the South Korean studio 'Shinslab Architecture' for Seoul's 'MoMA's Young Architects Program.'

The converted ship has a preserved exterior that was left as is, with the ship's rust and deterioration from age on full display. The interior of the ship has been gutted, painted and takes the form of a shaded pavilion. The installation is filled with plants, trees and seating, providing people passing by a relaxing break from the sun. The pavilion also features a partially secluded balcony for people to rest in.

This architectural installation makes use of a structure that is no longer in use for its primary function and converts it into something that once again has a purpose.
