Making a Contemporary Autogenous

Vernacular Architecture

The “SNU Gwanak Arboretum” hopes to function beyond a center for research, preservation, and exhibition of South Korea’s native plants in the South Scientific Forest. The center encompasses spatial qualities that work according to nature like a tree that is native to the site. Likewise, the center positions itself on the site as if its roots are naturally borne from the site. Qualities such as sunlight and raindrops are felt and heard by the users within the center, allowing users to interact and connect with the neighboring site.
