Design of the South Korea’s Land and Housing Corporation for DRDS, a Los Angeles based firm, won the international competition that has been organized early this year between 9 teams competing for a new US320 million corporate headquarters. The project reflects LH’s brand by creating a building that is harmonious both visually and technologically with the surrounding landscape. The project implements numerous sustainable methodologies at both the micro and macro scale. Features include a dramatic brise soleil on the southern façade of the tower and multistory interactive zones on the west that utilize an intelligent skin that draws cool air through the building. More about the design proposal comes from the architect after the break.

The design concept “Land Meets Sky” reflects LH’s brand by creating a building that is harmonious both visually and technologically with the surrounding landscape. The project implements numerous sustainable methodologies at both the micro and macro scale. Features include a dramatic brise soleil on the southern façade of the tower and multi-storey interactive zones on the west that utilize an intelligent skin that draws cool air through the building.

The project, located near a scenic river walk in Jinju, South Korea, integrates public and private program areas (a primary security concern); into a seamless composition that promotes an egalitarian environment. Public sports fields are located south of standing structures to take advantage of sunlight for athletic events and daily use.
