NAMELESS Architecture
NAMELESS Architecture is an ideas-based design practice. Na Unchung and Yoo Sorae each graduated from Hongik University and Korea University. They also both received an M.Arch. from the University of California, Berkeley in the United States. After establishing NAMELESS Architecture in New York in 2010, they expanded their office to Seoul. They run a practice committed to simplicity in an unpredictable world, where they explore the worlds of architecture, city, and global cultural phenomena.
