The next building imitating Star Wars is in South Korea where Moon Hoon Architects company has implemented the “Star Wars house” whose overall aesthetics and façade articulation references the Star Wars series.  According to an article on Designboom, the overall interior and exterior design of the house with inclined walls serves well the Korean trend of young families moving to detached homes. The surroundings of the house also offer an open play area for children and also responds to residents’ childhood dreams of becoming astronauts or Jedis.
