Interior Design Exchange with South Korea


LG is the client and they want to have a kiosk,
and it is in the corner of this huge mall, kind of like the “Mall of America”-ish type
thing here in America. And it’s Co-Ex Mall, and there is a lot of traffic from the subway.
They want you to include service, a place for download and then purchase of cell phones
and accessories. Korean students will design for one of the
largest malls, in Crown Center, Kansas City, and our students will design similar size
or more in downtown Seoul, Korea. So, I know they have a Polycom, so we have a Polycom,
that’s why it’s easy to connect in the video conferencing. They included a lot of information about Korea
in general, what the people are like, about their culture. They included things about
the historical buildings there, technology that they use. They talked about Seoul, Korea.
They talked about food and they also did a presentation on kiosks and the company LG. We had to design a kiosk with a 270 cm by
270 cm footprint. It had to be able to deconstruct to fit into a standard double door at night
to be stored away. The site for the kiosk is in Korea, Seoul, Korea. We worked a lot with how it’s going to be
powered. We worked with how ů researching different solar-powered ů to fit on top of
the roof and the direction it needs to be to actually receive the power. To attract people we included this large LCD
screen on this side so you would see advertisements for LG as you were getting off of the subway. But we also looked at how the human user is
going to work within the space and reach objects. And, so we put a bench back here for anyone
that is kind of frail and needs to sit down while viewing the products. I hope they learned the different types of
design approach, design ideas and solutions, and design techniques, as well as the design
processing.
