Situated in the northern suburb of Dobong-gu, this Korean community center promotes art and culture from a former military bunker. CoRe Architects oversaw the transformation of this tank-housing structure because the South Korean firm won a competition. The dimensions of the military facility are quite spacious. Extending for about 250 meters with "a sequence of C-shaped units," CoRe Architects leveraged, reinforced and preserved elements of the structure so that it offers an open space for exhibits and lecture halls, as well as facilities that house offices, art studios and even a restaurant.
The new Korean community center boasts wholesome open-air courtyards, making this initiative a wonderful instance of bringing people together and offering them opportunities for artistic, personal and professional development.
