To mark the opening of the striking building he has designed for the House of Dior boutique in Seoul, the architect Christian de Portzamparc, in an exclusive interview, discusses the project’s genesis, the sources of inspiration behind it and its construction.
Curves and Counter-curves
The House of Dior
Dior’s newest address is to be found in Seoul. Its curvaceous architecture designed by Christian de Portzamparc conceals a wealth of surprises. In a decor made of wood, lacquers, leathers, amazing weaves and innovative melanges to excite the senses, Peter Marino has chosen to welcome visitors with a suspended sculpture by Korean artist Lee Bul. The staircase is conceived as an unfurling ribbon that guides shoppers to the women’s ready-to-wear collections, leather goods, shoes, jewelry, watches and perfumes. But also to the Dior Homme space, and to an art gallery with a private salon where paintings by Marc Polidori, among others, are on show. The top floor is home to the Café Dior by Pierre Hermé. The animation Movie Toile by Oyoram is placed around the staircase. These video works, conceived as portholes, reveal fabrics in movement, timepieces and Paris cityscapes. This new, full-sized location perfectly evokes the history of the House in the most contemporary of visions.
The Secrets of Construction
All curves, fluidity and volumes, the new House of Dior boutique in Seoul designed by Christian de Portzamparc required a wealth of expertise and techniques for its construction. We examine a four-year story that takes us from France to South Korea.
