In Seoul, there’s a unique pavilion that looks oddly out of place. It’s only once you turn upside-down that you’ll realise what it really is: a rusty old ship.
While most ships go to die in a scrapyard where they’re cut up and sold off, Shinslab Architecture gave this vessel a second chance at life. They basically took its hull, flipped it, and turned its interiors into a beautiful and modern pavilion.
It’s a great example of recycling done right, and it also gets visitors to lament on our culture of waste. The building eventually won this year’s Moma Young Architects Program.
