gilles retsin architecture proposes a pre-fabricated structure, given strength through repetition, for the ‘suncheon art platform’ in the south korean city of the same name. composed of laminated veneer lumber sections that form 278 stiff hollow elements, the architecture takes cue from traditional korean styles — horizontally-oriented with overt consideration of the surrounding landscape.

retsin’s plan incorporates four main areas: a central courtyard, sculpture garden, green space, and entrance plaza. collectively, they form an expansive public place with intent to regenerate suncheon’s old-town. a long path winds through the various programs, acting as connector and framing views towards artistic interventions. the ‘suncheon art platform’ concept was created by gilles retsin architecture.
