Fine new monograph on the South-Korean architect Byoung Cho. Combining the ancient, millennial old, traditions of Korean architecture with Western inspired architecture, showing ways of being modern and traditional at the same time. Through interviews with and texts by Byoung Cho, he expands his views on Korean materiality and spatial concepts, and especially on the concept of Mahk, the Korean word for imperfection, which constitutes an important role in the aesthetics tradition of Korea. An article by the famous critic Kenneth Frampton puts the architecture of Byoung Cho in a perspective and shows his importance in contemporary architecture.
