CJ Studio regards architecture and design as social events not simply as a creation of art. In other words, it is an entrance to the world as well as an endless discovery.
For this long-term discovery, every design project (whether big or small) is a precious experience, and every project is also new venture itself. Proprietors and users have to join this adventure to seek and create a new processing system, which is a simple form that is full of energy and potential.
Through analyzing, integrating and rediscovering in every condition (environment, function, proprietor, foundation, historical background etc.), the order and geometrical relationship that lies beneath the real world can be found and the past can be connected with the future.
