Kim Young-Sub + Kunchook-Moonhwa Architect Associates

Images Publishing

  • Kim Young-Sub + Kunchook-Moonhwa Architect Associates has been involved in the construction of some of the most significant religious centres in Korea.

    The firm's work is deeply rooted in a fundamental spirituality, which is also found in Korean culture.

    Traditional Korean design is about subtle curves rather than straight lines, roofs that reach to the sky rather than remaining flat, and finishes of thick curved pine. These influences are clear in Kim Young-Sub's buildings as is his remarkable attitude towards space, from which he creates churches with large areas, voids, which are about symbolism and landscape.

    In addition to his religious buildings, a selection of Kim Young-Sub's residential, educational, welfare and commercial buildings is also featured in this superbly illustrated publication.
