"After finishing graduate school in March 2001, I went to India in the following June. It was natural for me to leave for somewhere as I, as a student, couldn’t find a place in which to settle down. Instead, I made much of what I was doing at that moment and I sought a new experience. I felt a thirst. Such emptiness led me to the site and, frequently taking time off from school, I made many field trips not only in Korea but also across Europe to discover the source works that influenced architects in the site.
India was comprised of 29 states, which have their own languages and diverse cultures. Thus I use the expression 'balance in diversity' regardless of any area when I talk about Indian art. I think I am engrained with the DNA of Korean Architecture and I have established my own architectural ground. If I chose a theme about Asian Aesthetics when I was young, now what I have to do is rumination through my own works."
