meet the original bauhaus

‘Bauhaus and Modern Life’, which explores the impact of experimental design by 20th-century designers on the culture of today, is underway at Kumho Museum of Art from Aug. 13 to Feb. 2, 2020. The exhibition, marking the 30th anniversary of the museum’s opening, features around 60 original Bauhaus works, as well as furniture, lighting and kitchen tools by European and American designers affected by Bauhaus. The visitor can encounter the works made of materials that emerged during the industrial era and emphasised functionality at the entrance to the second floor. The exhibition includes Marcel Breuer’s Nesting Tables (model B9) (1925–1926) with bent steel pipes, Desk Lamp (model 756) (1930), which was designed by Marianne Brandt, the first female head of the metal workshop of Bauhaus, and Wilhelm Wagenfeld’s Kubus Stacking Storage…

the manifestation of urban wound

In Seoul, where demolition work is always going on, the construction screens have become part of the street landscape. From the fabric torn by the strong wind to the metal panels that easily supersede the height of a full-grown adult, these screens cover up empty and removed places. However, what is being covered up here must not only be something physical. Let us remind ourselves of Norberg-Schulz’s words: the place where a human life is situated, a Genius Loci also resides. The thing that is disappearing due to redevelopment and reconstruction projects is also defined by the relationship that the location has with human beings—that is, the meanings and the feelings that had been evoked between them. The exhibition ‘Ghost City’, which was held from Sep. 4 – 29, was an…

an artistic exploration of modern technology

What happens when you use genetic modification to dye every chicken on the planet pink? If the chickens that are red to the bone are still consumed, then the remaining bones pile up on the ground and a pink line will be drawn on the stratum of the Anthropocene. This line will be evidence of human activities ranging from a meat-based diet to factory farms. It is a scenario of the Pink Chicken Project (Nonhuman Nonsense) on display at the ‘DA VINCI CREATIVE 2019: LIVING LIFE’. The Da Vinci Creative Festival, held from Aug. 23 to Sep. 11, is an annual exhibition organised by the Seoul Art Space Geumcheon since 2010, designed to support Korean media art and discover talented artists. This year, the festival tried to approach the all-round…

the digitally restored donuimun gate

Donuimun Gate, which has been left unrestored of the four main gates of Seoul City Wall, is reproduced by digital technology after 104 years. Demolished in the name of a road extension in 1915 during the Japanese colonial period, the gate has had difficulty during restoration due to the issues of traffic jams and land compensation. Last December saw a turning point in restoration projects, when an Agreement of Digital Reproduction of Cultural Assets and Revitalisation of Historical and Cultural City was signed by Cultural Heritage Administration (CHA), Woomi Construction Co., and Cheil Worldwide. The ‘Feasibility Study and Basic Plan for Donuimun Gate Restoration’ (2010), which includes construction methods, a restoration location, and a change of topography, was used as a reference work in historical research with the participation of Kim…

a modular housing complex built using an infill system

A prefabricated housing complex is built in Dujeong-dong, Cheonan using an infill system for the first time. The complex carried out by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MOLIT) in cooperation with Korea Agency for Infrastructure Technology Advancement, the Korea Land & Housing Corporation, and the Korea Institute of Civil Engineering and Building Technology is a single building with six floors with the building coverage of 402.16m2 , and total floor area of 1,514.55m2 , which accommodates 40 households. The infill system fills a grid structure with box-shaped modules, which is more stable than the stack structure and advantageous for the construction of high-rise buildings. Compared to the Gayang-dong Demonstration Complex in Gangseo-gu, Seoul, which adopted a modular construction system for the first time in Korea Modular Housing Complex in…
