DDP Kiosk

Built adjacent to the recently completed Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) in Seoul, South Korea, the Korean Kiosk acts as an information platform and spatial interface for visitors. Placed within the DDP, the kiosk complements the formal qualities of the architectural landscape in which it is placed. While the DDP emphasizes curvature on a horizontal plane, the Korean Kiosk experiments with curvature structured on a vertical axis. By reflecting formal elements of the DDP in a complementary scheme, the Korean Kiosk straddles between an interface for sculpture and structure. Within the kiosk, visitors encounter the punctuating cone geometry articulated on the kiosk’s shell.
