The Mesmerizing Leaf-Pixel Fronted “Forest House” In South Korea

(via) We dig this swell-looking restaurant in the South Korean city of Bupyeong. Designed by JYA-rchitects, the eatery has a main floor inset from the street and an upper floor fronted by a grid of pixel-like panels, every one of which can independently open and close. These panels – all painted a different shade of green – not only let in abstract light, shadow, and fresh air, but also reveal glimpses of the dining room to the street below. The aesthetic idea is to replicate the leaves of a tree moving in a breeze, hence the restaurant’s name: The Forest House.
