on the corner of insadong road within the retail district of seoul, korea is ‘poroscape’, a structure dedicated to clothes, designed by korean architect younghan chung. derived from the cultural weaving of hemp cloth, an exterior of woven masonry units features pores to screen and selectively reveal an internal framing of concrete and glass. beginning by first understanding the history of the encompassing context, the studio generated a map with measurements and simulations of existing buildings. the brand’s image as well as space requirements were integrated, reaching a total of 191 square meters on three levels.
