Design for commercial space reflects the changing lifestyle basically. Kyobo book Center at Busan Seomyeon shows such a change with two implicative images. Two images of sketch tell the before and after of this space is designed to be a place where people can visit and stay easily even though buying no books. Low bookshelves and open space make this bookstore be a space where people want to stay for a long time.

Designer chose Agora, a plaza formed in polis ancient Greek city state, as a motive of this space. Agora is the day was plaza, marketplace, place with storytelling, and such a space where people discussed about politics, economy and society freely. Consequently, it was a space of daily life forming culture in it, and the designer plans to create such a space at this project.
