South Korea-based Unsangdong Architects didn’t hold anything back with this ambitious proposal for the Thematic Pavilion of Yeosu 2012. “Ocean Imagination” was awarded an honorable mention.
The pavilion allows visitors to experience the ocean’s ecosystems. “Ocean Gate” takes the culture of the sea shore and shifts it vertically. This move creates a dynamic visual that is a constant reminder of nature’s different environments. “It combines ocean ecosystem and architecture in accordance with the main theme of ‘Ocean & Life,’” says Unsangdong Architects.
