While working as a project manager and design advisor for over 6 years, I was involved in every part of decision making by taking ownership of responsibilities. Throughout my career, I have improved the technical skills required to an architect, and also experienced the importance of work efficiency, communications, problem-solving skills, and time management. I also have studied architecture, urban design and planning, focusing on housing sustainability, urban revitalization and place making.

workshops from architectural-scale to urban-scale methodologies focusing on sustainability and revitalization in a way not to incur a loss of their intrinsic identity and also towards a novel place making.

Sejongdaero International Competition _Top 10, Honorable Mention

Plaza design competition by Seoul Metropolitan Government

To mark the 70th anniversary of Korea’s liberation from Japanese colonial rule in 2015, the site seeks to revive historical landscapes from the past and become a place for civic participation with the demolition of the existing building representing Japanese colonization. The proposal is initiated by removing the National Tax Service annex (Joseon Post Office) and clearing the site except for 25 columns of the demolished building to remain a trace of the past. The visitors will inscribe messages on the pillars, and record this era on top of the history of the past.
When the traces of history disappear, the trees start to grow on the plaza for citizens. Also, the 25-year-underground archive recorded by citizens completes the project.
