Less than 2 years ago we won the competition for the White Block Gallery. In retrospect it feels like the project leapt from paper to reality. Its successful completion is critical on many fronts – It was our first building in Korea, and it was our first free-standing arthouse. We have a lot of people to thank along the way, many of whom we hope to have credited on the project team list. Most of all, the experience has been invaluable and we’re now tooled and ready for what’s next: to take on more projects in Asia, and to step further into doing work that can bring a positive effect on the public life of our cities, both at the scale of the individual and at the scale of the larger urban framework.
