“Korea Style” reveals the central elements of Korean design: simplicity, moderation, constraint, and a deep respect for all things natural. Despite the filtering of Japanese and Western design ideas into Korea over the millennia, the peninsula has maintained its own identity. Spatial, spiritual, and material qualities are reflected in the pure beauty of its architectural design, while classic uniquely Korean objects are used with distinctive flair in interior design and decoration. “Korea Style” features 22 exceptional buildings ranging from vernacular to cutting-edge that celebrate Korea's culture, landscape, arts, and architectural history with invention, experimentation, and individuality.
