when digital technology permeates architecture

How will the progress of digital technology affect architecture in the future? How will a new logic of form and construction change architecture? It is not easy to predict, but many architects and architectural firms are already active in applying digital technologies to establish new paradigms in architecture. Sometimes they run their own modelmaking team, including Foster + Partners, Zaha Hadid Architects, and Morphosis. Haenglim Architecture & Engineering Co., Ltd. (hereinafter Haenglim Architecture) is also operating their own modelmaking team, ‘Haenglim Shop’. Haenglim Architecture recently held the ‘Agitecture’ exhibition about architectural designs and models using digital technology at Myungdong Church Gallery 1898 from July 17 to 29. The title of the exhibition ‘Agitecture’ is a compound word of ‘Agitpunkt’ plus ‘Architecture’, which means that in-house architects gathered in a hideout to…

the strength of busan: observing original city centre

The exhibition ‘Busan: It exists now as it was then’, which explores Busan’s original city centre (wondoshim), is on show from Aug. 3 to Sep. 15 at F1963 in Busan. From the perspective of viewing the dynamic history of wondoshim and the lives enshrined within it as Busan’s foundation of strength, this exhibit explores this theme through the photographs, paintings, installations, and video works of 16 local artists that total up to 100 works. The first section, ‘Surging, Rolling Power’, focuses on the sea.

This is Jung Manyoung’s GgangKangKungPungKwang. It exhibits a recording taken in GgangGgangyi town where continuous racket produced by hammers striking and…

the sensations of delivery

Penetrating our everyday lives, it seems nearly impossible to imagine the world these days without delivery. The spread of high-speed internet services and the growth of single households, along with the advancement of the delivery system, has helped free such services of limitations and make available myriad items and accessible the remotest of places. The competition between service brands, including promises such as one-day delivery, before- sunrise-delivery, and express-delivery, are higher and more in demand than ever. One artist is attempting to capture this social phenomenon, transferring it into their interrogative art pieces. Her name is Koo Donghee, an installation artist. The exhibition, ‘Delivery’, which will be held from July 20 to Sep. 1 at Art Sonje Center, will be Koo’s first solo exhibition in five years after her inclusion…

thomas barger’s furniture exhibition ‘sugar dish’

Thomas Barger’s first solo exhibition ‘Sugar Dish’ was held in Supply Seoul in Seongsu-dong from July 25 to Aug. 15. Thomas Barger, a young furniture designer born in 1992, majored in architecture and landscape architecture, and produces furniture of cartoonish shapes and intense colours. Not knowing how to make furniture because he was not trained as a furniture designer, he began furniture design with discarded IKEA furniture found on the street by adding paper pulp to it. This production method soon became part of his unique design language. The powerful image of his furniture means that it looks like sculpture, but they are also practical items satisfying their function. A biscuit-like object with a bite taken out of it is a hanger; a round volume like a tree trunk with three…

the 37th seoul architecture award report

The finalists in the 37th Seoul Architecture Award have been announced. Oil Tank Culture Park, designed by Heo Seogoo and RoA architects, have been selected as the Grand Prize winner. Oil Tank Culture Park is a remodeling project of an oil storage site—a modern industrial facility. The project was praised for how it managed to overcome the overbearing impression of the original facility, the unique property of the site, and an unclear programme to transform the site into a new architectural space while retaining and effectively drawing on the structural properties of each oil tank. Excellence Awards were given to a total of four works: the Seosomun Shrine History Museum by a consortium including Yoon Seunghyun (professor, Chung-Ang University), Interkerd Architects, VOID architects and LESS architects; Amorepacific Headquarters by David Chipperfield…
