The Korean architects: Choi Jangwon, Park Cheonkang, and Kwon Kyungmin – who go under the name Moon Ji Bang- designed the temporary mushroom-like inflatables in korea’s International Museum of Modern and Contemporary art. It’s the first Seoul edition of MOMA’s Young Architects Program (YAP).

The Moon Ji Bang explained that the fungi-shaped installation was inspired by an ancient Korean myth: “Shinseons are imaginary Taoist hermits who live on top of high mountains or above clouds, transcending the hustle and bustle of the human world of joy, anger, sorrow, and pleasure.”

An amazing thing is that you can jump through the clouds, from heaven to earth; on a trampoline in the middle of the installation as you feel the balloons sway gently by the wind or if you touch it, also you’d enjoy the series of flowers at the base.
