Joo-Hyun Park

DArch Candidate

JooHyun Park receives the Grand Prize -- paid internship in summer 2017 at BLT Architects (BLTa) and a $1000 prize award --for his entry in the BLTa 2016 Student Design Competition.  His award winning project entitled, “Vault Shaped Housing” provides unique experiences for retail and public spaces, including a variety of unit types for single and family dwellers. He  incorporated prefabricated systems, the focus of his doctoral thesis, and precast concrete in his design, which complements the riverside historical bridge and captures the city’s rich history 

 

BLT Architects, Inc. is a Chicago-based architectural firm specializing in the evaluation and renovation and repair of existing commercial and residential buildings. This is the 6th year that BLTa invited undergraduate and graduate architecture students to propose imaginative design ideas for a real-world building site. This year’s challenge was to create a mixed use development for an underutilized riverfront site in a Philadelphia business district, at the foot of a unique historic bridge on the Schuylkill River, 

 

JooHyun values the guidance he received from Professor David Rockwood.
