Bibliography Includes bibliographical references.
Summary " Seoul - one of the most densely populated urban areas on the planet. The tremendous pressure this mega city inflicts on architecture in terms of spatial intensification, verticalization and amplification, challenges architectural stereotypes and promotes innovation. Megacity Network presents 32 projects from the last ten years by 16 representative Korean architects. Being rather mixtures and hybrids of conventional typologies, the projects range from traditional timber-structure houses to corporate headquarters or a sports dome, each one of them meeting the demands of Seoulþs eclectic urban landscape in its own way. Essays on the urban and architectural background complete the book, making it an exciting overview on spectacular new Korean architecture."--BOOK JACKET.
