Speaking about the pavilion, Shinslab Architecture says: “Temp’L is designed from recycled steel parts from an old ship. It shows not only a beauty of structure, but it has also a recycling purpose…It provokes thought about beauty in our time, coming from a recent past.”

To create the pavilion, Shinslab Architecture sawed off a section of hull from a rusty ship and placed it upside down. They left the exterior corroded, and painted the interior white. They also added a balcony, a spiral staircase, and trees underneath the hull to create a restful space.

Temp’L is located at the entrance of the courtyard at MMCA Seoul. Shinslab Architecture hopes visitors will reflect on recycling and how architects can consider the environment at Temp’L. They said they aim “not only to develop a new method of construction in architecture by recycling materials, but for those who will see to create emotion.”

In their description Shinslab Architecture wrote, “Any great cultural vestiges can lose their function. In the same way, a material can also lose its original value over time. The fact that the destiny of cultural relics is to be dismantled, should make us reflect upon what we need to consider for future generations.”

The Young Architects Program in Seoul is put on by the Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1, along with MMCA. Shinslab Architecture is based in Seoul and in Versailles, France. Claire Shin, Charles Girard, Souho Lee, Camille Chalverat, Javier García González, and Taewoo Ha were all part of the Temp’L project.
