korean firm mass studies has designed the ‘DAUM headquarters’ for an international IT company based in the jeju province, an island off the southern coast of korea. the company positioned themselves on the autonomous island away from metropolitan areas, to oppose their competitors with an awareness of korea’s rapid population growth and densities representing it as the most urbanized country in the world. the development diversifies the island’s mainly touristic industry to contribute a technology-focused one. similar to silicon valley, the proposal creates a creative work community within a utopian setting. part of a 1,095,900 square meter masterplan situated near jeju university, the 300 meter wide and 800 meter long plot will be constructed over time in a linear, organic manner. the area is planned to divide rural and urban as well as formal and informal zones.

 

the urban zone will host a superstructure measuring 70 meters wide by 800 meters long which will support efficient working spaces, farming and sports sections. the large sclae is humanized with 8.4 meter by 8.4 meter structural modules with variations  of extruded or curved elements. generated 12.6 meter long spans and 6.3 meter cantilevers form intimate working environments and shelter outdoor spaces. segments of the five-storey high exterior adjust to the uniformly sloping terrain’s gradual 60 meter change across its length, ensuring connections through the interior.

  • …and then there are some that are just plain spooky.

  • It’s very beautiful! Kind of architecture that invokes the sense of belonging in users…..and further a pride in their association with the building.
