Located in one of Korea’s cleanest mountainous areas, the complex will hopefully create a balance between architecture and nature, while providing optimal working conditions for its users. It was conceived as a tripartite structure with Core, Refresh and Research zones. The Core Zone has three radially positioned facilities that house a visitors’ area, offices and a quarantine space. This is the most public and accessible area of the complex.

The Refresh Zone comprises guest houses and housing capacity for researchers. The most interesting part-the Research Zone-is based on a modular system of ‘Cell Units,’ which are a combination of indoor/outdoor breeding farms and research facilities. Thanks to the modular configuration, the complex can be expanded or transformed according to its needs.
