Around 20 years ago, a government housing expo in the Gangnam district of Seoul in South Korea featured a town designed by leading local architects.

As well as making maximum use of the limited available footprint, this house – Ga On Jai – built by Iroje Khm Architects neatly encapsulates four distinctive Korean techniques of Korean architecture: Ru (internal support with one facade left open); Madang (the inner court); Cheoma (cantilevered roof) and Doldam (stone masonry wall).
