Korea Special, Paju and Heyri Art Village

Architecture and color: A wide range of options.

An art village dominated by integrally colored concrete.

The Heyri Art Village in the Korean town of Paju is an outstanding example not only of the architectural and aesthetic potential offered by colored concrete in modern design, but also of the social and cultural opportunities it opens up. In particular the architectural concept of this art village near Paju reflects the cultural aspirations of modern-day Korea – a country that is also breaking new ground in  architecture. It shows courage and adopts a creative approach to color, form and material use.

It is therefore logical that the architecture of many of the buildings in the Heyri Art Village comprises cube-shaped structures made entirely of fair-faced concrete. Integrally colored concrete plays a key role in this unique architectural project involving the design of new public areas.

This is also true of the publishing house in Paju, which has a clear, absolutely puristic, no-frills structure.
