Introduction
Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Vietnam is a project executed through the design competition with a firm determination of the embassy to build 'the best government office building embodying the soul of nations of Korea'. The project is located within the Hanoi Diplomatic Complex. When designing an embassy, the topic of identity is the most concerning part of the design. This project used metaphors to express the elements of Korean traditional architecture and applied a new way of interpreting 'Korean Identity' in the light of modernity. The lines of the exterior walls are curved to express the beauty of Korean traditional roof's eaves. The exterior that harmoniously creates Yin and Yang utilizing the beauty of lofty patterns and grid-patterned windows was designed so that the light passing the exterior can be painted in the patterns in the interior space, allowing us to feel the harmony of Yin and Yang created by light both outdoors and indoors. As well, the large window (lattice-pattern) was arranged on the outside of the building so that visitors can feel the symmetrical beauty of traditional architecture. The Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Vietnam, which is well received by visitors, will be a good example to enhance the image of Korea through design, and will contribute to diplomatic activities with other countries by enhancing the nationality of Korea.
