JOHO Architecture - Lee Jeong Hoon
JOHO Architecture is an architecture firm established in Seoul by architect Lee Jeong Hoon in 2009. Lee studied architecture and philosophy at Sungkyunkwan University before earning a master’s degree in architectural materials at Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Nancy and an architects license (D.P.L.G.) at Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Paris-La Villette. In 2010 he was the recipient of the Korean Young Architect Award, and in 2013 his firm was named a ‘Design Vanguard’ by the US architectural magazine Architectural Record, a title awarded to emerging architects. He was awarded the 2014 Fritz Höger Architecture Award (Germany), the 2015 THE PLAN AWARD (Italy), and was also included among the Wallpaper* Architects’ Directory (UK). Interpreting architecture as a part of the humanities, JOHO Architecture bases their philosophy on creating a new identity and discourse in contemporary cities. In addition, architectural materials are set as a unit of ‘geo_metry’ and designs are developed through the grouping, addition and subtraction of these units. This ‘material_metry’ refers to the reinterpretation of a material’s meaning within the context of a site.
