Agora is the members’ club house designed and named by Mario Bota, a Swiss architect (Agora means ‘to gather’ in Greek, so it is a ‘place of communication’).
Architectural characteristics of Mario Bota: Geometric shapes, light incoming through large windows, and facade comprised of grooved strips.
How to Enjoy Agora
Agora offers a unique space where the rooms are underground and only the glass pyramid stands above the ground. There is a square in the center of the building
with rooms around it, so the pyramid ceiling above the open square brings the sunlight into the space.
Moon after the gust of wind
“Moon after the gust of wind” is an expression used by Huang, Ting Jian, a poet and calligrapher
from the North Song Dynasty of China, to show his respect for Zhou Dun Yi. It originated from the saying that
“The heart is as cool and clean as the wind of a clear day and the moon after a rainy day.”
You can witness the architectural characteristics of Mario Bota on the exposed exterior walls, elevator boxes,
and fire places. Other noticeable details include geometric shapes and patterns, exterior walls finished
with Jeju flagstone, and piles of bricks.
The outdoor swimming pool is over-drained toward the sea, so the surface of water matches the horizon
to make you feel as if you are swimming in the sea.
Tour of Agora (VR)
The materials come from the stones and dirt of Jeju.
The artworks are created with the dramatic effect of Jeju’s light.
Mario Bota, a master of contemporary architecture from Switzerland, creates the dramatic effect of light with
natural materials such as stones and dirt. The luxurious villas and Agora of Phoenix Island are completed with
heavy weight and intensive geometric shapes to attract vacationers from all around the world.
" Architecture is a tool to deviate from the loss of identity, a key to escape from the
tediousness of everyday life, and a way to leave the society of consumption. "
Mario Bota uses light so much that he is sometimes described as ‘thirsty for light.’
He believes that an architect’s job is to create new relationships and meanings for a place.
