South Korea's Wildest Designer Unveils a Fire-Breathing Hostel

Another project from ebulliently kooky South Korean architect Moon Hoon has hit the web: a guest house on the island of Jeju that takes after a nearby tourist site called the Yongdoam, a basalt formation shaped like a dragon's head. Hence the eurofoam finish painted to resemble basalt rocks, and that preposterous and kind of amazing viewing platform, rising like a red-throated dragon mid-roar. Add some diamond-shaped windows and skewed interior angles, and you've got peak Moon Hoon.

Other selections from the "happy destroyer's" ouvre include horned ski chalets and a full-on Star Wars house.
