Since graduating with a B.F.A. degree from the University of Seoul, Korea in 2007, Hyun Chung spent the past four years traveling through East Asia before traveling to the United States. The M.Arch.1 program at Cornell is the latest segment on his journey to amplify and blend his various cultural experiences into his career as an architect.
Hyun Chung is interested in the habits of users, both in analog and digital spaces, as well as the attitude of architects who apply forms and messages onto social and urban contexts. The chosen three projects showcased on his works page are pulled from his 1st and 2nd years of the M.Arch.1 program. Each project aims primarily at rethinking the issue of scale between site and architecture through virtual space. At the same time, he carefully focuses on dealing with the built environment and conventional construction processes for the representation of the works in reality.
