Open House: A 20 Room Vertical Treehouse Village in Korea
Posted By Yuka Yoneda On October 27, 2010 @ 6:34 pm In Architecture,Treehouses | 2 Comments
Open House was designed by raumlaborkorea  (with the help of the community), and celebrated its grand opening last month. But it isn’t technically “complete” – and that’s the whole point! raumlaborkorea’s intention was for the village to keep growing and evolving over the years in response to the needs of Anyang as a type of “social sculpture.” While it may appear to be just a building on the outside (albeit an intriguing one), Open House is really a “self-learning laboratory, constantly in creation and transformation for the collective research of the open community.”
In addition to the community-run greenhouse , Open House will have many programmed spaces including the Open House Real Estate office, anchae (a women’s conversation room called a Room of One’s Own), an artist studio and workshop, a bar, a teahouse, jeonggas, a kitchen, a farm  and more. Each of these areas is open for the public to use and enjoy workshops, film screenings, performances, concerts, parties and art exhibitions.
