This beautifully illustrated monograph details the designs and unbuilt works of renowned Korean architect firm BCHO Partners and explores the firm's focus on architecture with simple structures and a strong regard for the natural environment. Filled with a rewarding collection of unbuilt projects, this richly illustrated monograph provides critical insight from the designers into the context of each development and plan. These projects all feature one consistent interest: a concern for the relationship between the proposed building and the surrounding landscape. The carefully selected collection of projects reflects the breadth of the firm's past explorations and the diversity of ground conditions they have encountered. The book provides an occasion to revisit the vast collection of the firm's past unbuilt projects through the common lens of the given site and landscape.
