Where: Offsite AIANY Event   

Hafele Showroom | 25 E 26th St, New York, NY 10010

Join 2014 New Practices New York Competition Winner Unchung Na, Sorae Yoo, and Kiseok Oh of NAMELESS Architecture at the Hafele showroom for their presentation: (im)possible architecture

We believe in the new possibilities of architecture, which can modify the stubborn boundaries between fundamental ideas and everyday life. This starts from an interest in looking at pre-existing firm things from a different perspective. The new role of the architect of our time is envisioned under the belief that everything can be reinterpreted and rediscovered. To achieve this, seemingly contradictory relationships are re-examined.

1. Architecture possesses both strengths and weaknesses at the same time.
2. Architecture is not only a heavy edifice weighing on the gravity of the site, but also an almost ephemeral phenomenon.
3. Complexity and simplicity create each other.

NAMELESS Architecture
NAMELESS Architecture is a concept-based design practice run by Unchung Na, Sorae Yoo and Kiseok Oh. After establishing NAMELESS in New York, the practice has since expanded into Seoul, South Korea. By exploiting synergies created between the two cities, NAMELESS Architecture primarily responds to locality, while employing an inter-urban nomadic approach as a physical strategy in the global era. Ranging from ephemeral pavilions to more enduring buildings and cultural infrastructures, their works explore new possibilities for architecture at the edges of the discipline. NAMELESS Architecture is recipient of the 2011 Architectural League Prize for Young Architects and Designers, the 2011 AIA New York Design Awards, and the Korea Young Artist Award 2012.
