Studio SH lands second place in South Korean library contest

A UK-based outfit has narrowly missed out in the UIA-backed competition to design the £4.3 million Daegu Gosan Public Library

Newcomer Studio SH, comprising AA student Seung Hyun Yuh and Se Hyeon Kim, came a close second in the internatonal contest.

The top prize went to Spain’s Gorka Blas, while Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios received an honourable mention.

Alan Keane of Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios said: ‘The competition was an opportunity to explore some prescient ideas of weight, mass, a well composed elevation, and a relationship with place.

‘We have an interest in not denying our architectural heritage with new and fanciful forms, but continuing a discourse generations old.’
