“Dialogues” is just a single word but it summarizes everything the site needs in order to be active again and to become an important hub for the whole city.

It is an in-between building from tradition and modernity, which expresses and encourages the changing process that is already going on today. There is no need to add an extreme modernity to solve the problems of this place, which is already rich in complexity and vibrations.

“Dialogues” is a ‘cultural’ hub where people can gather and, of course, dialogue protected from the chaotic life of the city. It emphasizes the undiscovered beauty of Suncheon with its landscape and its art.

“Dialogues” derives from the Analects of Confucius: it is an invitation to share ideas and experiences, everybody under the same roof, going back to the ancient korean traditions and their values.
