along the shores of seoul, korea, yoon space and song pyoung have envisioned the prototype for a series of giant egg-shaped capsules called ‘albang’. the designers wanted to suggest a maximum amount of occupiable area with a minimum amount of interior design, rendering the concept of an ‘outdoor living space.’ but straying away from the normative conditions provided by hotels, tents, and camping cars, the constructs grant a unique experience that can be moved to any location.

while the exteriors present a replicated aesthetic, the volumes are differentiated by their distinct doors, with colors that continue to the inside surfaces. the sculpture-like architecture utilizes environmentally-friendly materials. a majority of its ingredients consist of expanded polystyrene with economic, lightweight, mobile, incombustible, and insulating benefits. these are accompanied by seismic, aerodynamic, and convection effects for safe use.
