BHUJON KANG ARCHITECTS is a design studio for architecture and urbanism. Based on the transcultural experiences in several regions; U.S, Japan, and Korea, we learned how to respect the local culture and history. Now we articulate our methodology to create innovative solutions for our clients and the community.
The contemporary socio-economic changes invariably imply the unstable but dynamic social structure. The unprecedented phenomena demand professional fields to transform their nature into others upon the status proactively. We now confront a new building culture where the quantified matter is not only the valuing measurement in the market anymore and forced to investigate more complex ways how to build.
Then, we believe that the architectural design process is never limited to provide following drawing materials for construction but needs to widen the spectrum.
In that sense, we are equipped with multifaceted analytical tools to understand the urban conditions for various programs on demand. Our design is a consequence of the analysis which, of course, is closely related to the mutual satisfaction of our clients, community as well as the urban environment.
The advanced technology also facilitates the creative design solutions both aesthetically and functionally. Our architectural output is made of a systemized assembly that is reactive to the embodied program and contexts, and that also shares the local aesthetic tradition.
We welcome any design offers regardless of types, sizes, and programs. Please feel free to contact us. We look forward to having a great opportunity to support your successful business and the better life.
We pursue a creative practice under the transcultural variety. We try to find elaborative ways how to incorporate the various historical and contextual resources into innovative design solutions. We believe such a hybridization catalyzes to discover the potential values in the local community and to create its unique civic presence, that our global experiences make possible.
Needless to say, the most critical global issue is linked to the environmental crisis. Sustainability is a collective concern. Not only pointing out the social contribution, we, more importantly, consider the enhanced condition to facilitate our design for our clients. We provide the design solution with global green standards and B.I.M, which also satisfies the creativity.
We operated the projects by parties and individuals from everywhere. It doesn't limit them only to the architectural field. Talented engineers and artists can join the collaboration in the design process. We expect such a group synergy to extend the boundary of our design and discover more innovative ways of thinking. It is a core value in our practice.
Bhujon Kang is a Korean-native registered architect in Arizona and Illinois. His career spans over fifteen years with a varied scope of design work including large-scale civic architecture, professional and educational interdisciplinary teamwork, advanced computational research, art installations, and design competitions. He led the schematic design and design development of the 500,000 SF “Busan Opera House” designed by Snøhetta. While at Toyo Ito’s office, his art installation proposal “Inside in” had the honor of being exhibited in Mr. Ito's exhibition, “Where is Architecture?” at the Museum of Modern Art of Tokyo in 2010. In Will Bruder’s studio (Phoenix, AZ), his facade design for the 240,000 SF “KAFD Portal Spa” in Saudi Arabia was an idiosyncratic system of a generative cladding. Recently, he won the second prize for “Haeundae Public Library” competition in Busan, Korea, and another proposal for “Seoul Craft Museum” was selected as a finalist.
Bhujon formerly served the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Northern Arizona University, and Dong-A University, Korea, teaching design studios and seminars. He pursued his Master's degree in the University of Texas at Austin where he was the recipient of the Design Excellence Award in the School of Architecture.
