Architecture Competition Mega Dunes Eco Lodges Honorable mention – KAYWON UNIVERSITY OF ART AND DESIGN

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winners for our “Mega Dunes Eco Lodges - Abu Dhabi” competition – Jingyeong Park and Yejin Kim from Korea!

Jingyeong Park and Yejin Kim from Korea

We are students attending the Kaywon University of Arts in Korea.

Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance, what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where the company/individuals have been involved?

A tree moves along with the wind. When the wind leaves, it comes back to its place, but the sand doesn't. Follow where the wind is heading, and when the wind stops, even the sand stops. That's how dunes are made. Looking at the endless stretch of desert dunes that kept the traces of the wind as they were, it was like looking into the memory of wind. Our space stops in the movement of the dunes and becomes part of the memory of the wind. As a design adapted to the natural environment, it does not give visually psychological stress to animals.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Recovery of the appropriate relationship. It has meaning as a relationship between man and man, nature and man, and things and human beings. In order for such a respectful relationship to be restored, promises must be kept, and sustainability is important. It may be a designer's role to attract attention as an exterior design, but we think it's important to create a space that is used for a long time and adds value over time.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

Because we want to have a lot of different and interesting experiences related to architecture.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture vision competitions?

Effort does not betray. Cheer up!
