many of moon hoon’s residential commissions in south korea come from young highly spirited couples who have small budgets but big ideas. the simple house is one of the more pragmatic homes.
the chicago architecture biennial 2017 is in town thru mid-january 2018 so when i’m in the area i revisit the installations. 2017 is the second edition of this event, the first being 2015. each iteration features over 100 participants and most are emerging with vague name/project recognition. but, upon seeing architect moon hoon’s name and latest project it nudged me to refresh my memory. the above drawing was one of many mind-bending drawings hoon presented in 2015. the simple house is his latest reality projects completed in 2017
