Looming over the city like the classic ghetto-blaster is the Kring-Gumho Culture Complex in Seoul. Soul, hee. Get it? Seoul, soul. Yeah, well, Unsangdong Architects (I did not make that up) designed this steel building that features circular indented forms. A cylinder walkway connects the levels. People who attend cultural events will have to â€œscratchâ€ their way to the top.
Implications - In addition to highly stylized designs, architects are looking for quirky designs that are appealing and unique. Inspirations drawn from boom boxes and other hip objects often make a structure more people-friendly, eliminating any perceived pretenses. Architects should continue to take on playful designs as a way of making their work more welcoming to people who occupy the space.
