'Urbanism for Architecture' is a collection of 20 projects signed by Yo2 Architects from South Korea. The practice is led by Young Joon Kim, City Architect of Seoul, Professor at MIT and Seoul National University and curator of the Seoul Biennale. The atelier focuses on realizing new architectural solution based on the complexity of the contemporary living in Seoul. The primary research and projects of Yo2 Architects are based on an urbanistic approach to architecture, described in the categories 'Five Houses', 'Composite Masses', Urbanism for Architecture', Collective Forms'. "In a house as in a city, the important things are located in-between the functions. The scale doesn't change the approach. When you design architecture from an urbanistic approach, you cannot see the building as a single self-standing structure. My starting idea is to rethink, rebuild, and reorganize the design across all scales creating continuity by breaking the boundaries between architecture and urbanism and between buildings and city. What I call it is: Urbanism for Architecture." Young Joon Kim]
