the electric generation and its evolution

The generation of electricity allowed factories to increase their productivity, and the city evolved into a place in which people could spend more time. Electricity, which arguably marks the dawn of the modern age, has now become an essential resource in our lives. ‘Electric Universe’, which reinterprets electricity as enabling various activities from artistic points of view, was on display until Dec. 13 2019 at Culture Station Seoul 284. The exhibition shows how electricity has expanded all aspects of life and culture over time, contemplating the coincidence of electrical development and historical events. When one enters Culture Station Seoul 284, one is overwhelmed by the large photo of the Seoul Power Station positioned in front of the entrance. Although it is no longer in operation, the oppressive feeling of a mechanical…

gwanghwamun remembered

Ever since it was announced that Seoul Metropolitan Government’s plans to revamp Gwanghwamun Square would be put on hold, a string of public hearings, debates and forums have taken place to discuss the future of the project. One such event was at the National Museum of Korean Contemporary History (NMKCH) on Dec. 5, at which a panel of experts engaged in a discussion of the significance of Gwanghwamun Square in Korean modern history. Opening the debates was a keynote speech that revisited Gwanghwamun neighborhood’s experiences and history to suggest the possibility of new research.

revealing ondol structure of hyangwonjeong

A pond, located in the northern garden of Gyeongbokgung Palace, is in the shadow of a two-storey pavilion in the centre of a small island. Hyangwonjeong, which means ‘the fragrance spreads far away’, is a pavilion in which the King and his family can enjoy the scenery and rest in shady areas. It is believed to have been built between 1867 and 1873, during the building of Gyeongbokgung Palace. Designated as treasure no. 1761 in 2012, it was informed by geometric spatial compositions, such as the hexagonal cornerstone, hexagonal floor plan and six-sided roof, as well as delicately refined architectural elements. Hyangwonjeong is a rare example of a pavilion with an agungi (fireplace). The experts speculated that there was an ondol (Korean floor heating system), but it has never been demonstrated.…

the opening of 8 anchor facilities around seoul station

In tandem with the Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) revitalising the areas located around Seoul Station, Jungnimdong, Hoehyeon-dong, Seogye-dong, and Namdaemun Market, in progress since Dec. 2017 as part of the Seoul Station Vicinities Urban Revitalization Project, the eight proposed anchor facilities opened in Nov. 2019. To create anchor facilities around Seoul station, SMG picked key locations in 2016 to 2018 and purchased a total of 10 facilities composed of houses and buildings. Residents’ opinions were collected through regional residential collective bodies, and workshops were conducted by professionals and other involved parties to adjust the purpose and management directives of the anchor facilities. At the construction stage, the public architect collected the residents’ opinions and considered the building’s conditions before going for either renovation or a new construction. The eight anchor facilities,…
