Inspiration from Nature and Tradition

The architectural design process in projects by Leejae of LEESLIST & Leejae Architects  has been inspired by the vocabulary of nature and natural forms but  has resulted in an architecture that is divergent from nature and sometimes unnatural. Uninterested in a "formal equivalence" to natural vocabularies,  Leejae instead seeks a "dynamic equivalence" when working nature into an architectural concept. Different environments create different humanistic interpretations of landscape and space; Leejae  uses nature and environment to peel back the subjective influences of society-its politics, cultures, and religion-in an attempt to revert to basic human experiences. This allows Leejae  to explore the fundamentals of how nature, as distinct from human intervention, influences architecture.
