welcome to hotel

Culture Station Seoul 284, which is located near the bustling Seoul Station, has been transformed into a hotel. The exhibition ‘Hotel Express 284’ introduces the hotel’s unique cultural legacy through an archive from their collections since the 1880s, when modern culture had taken root in Korea as its ports had opened to the world, to the present day where various programmes have now been added. While preserving the composition of the ‘Winter Coffee Club’ that opened in 2018, the exhibition was designed as a reenactment of the space and the service provided by hotels in Seoul of the past. Upon entering the central hall of the Culture Station Seoul 284, one encounters a red carpet that evokes the image of a modern hotel lobby. This space, which adopted the motif of…

a ‘home’ that can be interpreted differently

The exhibition ‘designed by another ARCHITECT: The romance of many dimensions’ (hereinafter designed by another ARCHITECT) curated by Diagonal Thoughts (co-principals, Kim Sara and Kang Sojin) was on show from Jan. 7 to 19 in the Onground Gallery. The exhibition also featured the work of the artists Park Swan, Jang Sunggun, Anna Anderegg, and Kim Jooyoung. By reinterpreting a building designed by a certain someone from a different viewpoint, the exhibition delivered the message that a space can be perceived differently according to its viewer. Kim Sara explained, ‘this exhibition is a story about personal experience and the recognition of a pre-existing space, and we tried to narrate an architectural story through a method that would differ from solely the act of building’.

looking at the city as a collection of stories

The exhibition ‘STORYSCAPE’ was held at Wooran Foundation from Dec. 5, 2019 to Jan. 11, 2020. Coined by the project designer of this exhibition, Joon Won Suh (principal, GongGanIkki-Creative Lab for Local and Human Stories), the word ‘STORYSCAPE’ refers to a landscape with a story.
