1000 Doors by Choi Jeong-Hwa

We came across a story about this amazing project that left us in awe when we found out that the construction and façade was a use of recycled materials. In Seoul Korea, there is a building that makes an artistic statement for environmental preservation and recycling. Some may see this project as an eyesore, while others see it as a structure that bears a deep message. This project is called 1000 Doors, but we see it as a tower for doors of opportunity.

South Korean artist and designer Choi Jeong-Hwa worked unbelievable magic with discarded doors on a 10-story building in Seoul. He covered the façade of this commercial building with 1,000 discarded doors. Choi is widely known to use other discarded objects like plastics and various types of trash discarded by millions of people into an novel art form. He is best known as the artist who elevates dumpster diving to high art. http://choijeonghwa.com/ He is brilliant with over the top imagination and creativity. What a courageous way to take recycling to a completely new and innovative level.
