THE OCEAN IS OUR TREASURE
HOW CAN THE PAVILION SLIP INTO THE OCEAN?
The tidal activity of the ocean is the breath of the earth.
The archipelago landscape is a creature of the Yeosu ocean
and coast.
The proposed pavilion is gently floating on the ocean as to
create a festive place for people both on the sea and on the
top of the building, while refl ecting the tidal phenomenon on
its bottom side.
To destroy the ocean is to destroy the human being. Like the
melting Polar Ice Caps show, human beings have tormented
the ocean coast throughout the 20th century both passively
and directly.
Now, what is called for in this 21st century is a new
symbolization of nature and tuning into the unique character
and history of each place.
Although symbolic at a glance, the proposed shape is
generated so as to tune into the nature and ocean, and that
allows for a new relationship between the ocean and human
beings.
THIS PROPOSAL IS THE NEW SYMBOLIZATION
