Livestream | AnA | Kim In-cheurl & Cho Byoung-soo

Architects, not Architecture aims to bring to the stage what we normally don’t see. We invite well-known architects, who instead of talking about their award winning international projects, are asked to talk about themselves. They speak about their path, their influences and experiences, and dive deeper into their intellectual biography.

On Wednesday, January 6th, 2021 live from 18:30 to 20:00 KST Korean time (10:30 CET Berlin time) the two following Korean architects will talk on our virtual stage about their personal experiences and important creative periods in their lives and, as always at “AnA“, not a word may be lost about their projects. 

Kim In-cheurl, Archium, www.archium.co.kr
Cho Byoung-soo, BCHO Architects, www.bchoarchitects.com

Information about the speakers

Kim In-cheurl is a South Korean architect, who was born in Jinhae. He studied architecture at Hong-ik University in Seoul and received his master’s degree from Kuk-min University. After he had gained experience working in the office of Aum Dok-moon, he established his own practice called Inje architects, which was later renamed to archium. He has worked as a professor at Chung-ang University, was member of the Presidential Commission on Architecture Policy and currently holds the position of City Architect for the Busan Metropolitan Area. 

His work has been honored with various national awards, including multiple awards of the Korean Institute of Architecture, the Kim Su Geun Architecture Award and the Seoul Architecture Award for the Kim Ok-Gil Memorial Hall, the headquarter for Woongjin Think Big and Urban Hive.

Apart from that, he has published several books and showed his work at the 3-Korean Architetcs Exhibition in Tokyo, Heyri Art Valley Exihibition and Paju Book City Exhibition in Berlin as well as the Mega City Network in Frankfurt, Germany.

Cho Byong-soo ist founder BCHO Partners, a forty people firm founded in Seoul, Korea in 1994. The firm, which is run by Byoungsoo Cho and two partners, started as a design-build office with a focus on simple structures and strong regard for nature. The design team has been working very closely with contractors and multiple fabrication specialists in various disciplines, including stone masons, product designers, wood workers, potters, and engineers.

The firm also has multiple professional collaborators throughout the world in North and South America. BCHO Partners believe that buildings, furniture, and art are made, not created. Each architectural project, encompassing various scales and programs, explores the phenomenon of light and space, fabrication and construction methods, recycling and reusing, and a broad sense of sustainability (social/cultural/physical) which uses collective creative energy to reduce the demand for grid energy.

Cho Byoung-soo has taught at various universities including Aarhus School of Architecture, Universitat Kaiserslautern, YonSei, HanYang, GyoungGi, and Harvard University. He has received KIA Award, Cri-Arc Award, AIA Honor Award, in Montana Chapter and in N.W. Pacific Regional. His recent works include Jipyoung Guesthouse, Hyundai Global Training Center, Concrete Box House, Ramp Building, and Be.Twixt. His firm has been selected as one of eleven Design Vanguard Firms by Architectural Record (Dec. 2004).
