IROJE Architects&Planners

The meaning of IROJE, translating directly, is ‘a house of stepping on dewdrops’. The origin of IROJE comes from an old Chinese Literature, Yeagi(禮記). There was a poor living scholar who served his old father. Every early morning he used to go to the quarter where his father lived, wearing an overcoat, and waited for his father to wake up. When his father came out, the scholar handed over his warmed overcoat to his father. The way to his father’s quarter was covered with dewdrops in the morning, thus the meaning of IROJE could be understood as a house for a scholar with voluntary poverty.
