The Void by Hyunjoo Yoo Architects
The Void is a minimal community center located in Jeollanam-do, South Korea, designed by Hyunjoo Yoo Architects. The Community Center in Aphae-do, Shinan-gun, Jeollanam-do is located on a special site, and has a special program. First of all, it was my first building project to be built on an island. Second, the main program of the building was the public bath and restaurant for the elders in the village. The elders, who make up most of the population in the fishing village, do not have a decent bathing facility in their home. They had to cover up the window, because the scenery with the rice paddy reminded the farmers of the work they needed to do, which did not help them to relax.
