Material marvels


“Steel Igloo” by architect Kim Chan-joong from the System Lab, top, and “Structure of Strips” by the Wise Architecture studio, above, are part of the exhibition “Out of the Box” running through Dec. 13 at the Kumho Museum of Art in central Seoul. In this show, six teams of Korean architects present installation works that test the limits and aesthetic potential of unusual building materials. The materials include stainless steel plates used by Kim, flexible bamboo used by Wise and transparent corrugated plastic roofing sheets by Moon Ji Bang. The other participants are Joho Architecture, Nameless Architecture and Office 53427. By Moon So-young
