In commemorating the 30-year anniversary
In commemorating the 30-year anniversary of the opening of Hungary-Korea relations, “A Cosmopolitan Look at Korean Contemporary Architecture” exhibition present 30 architectural projects of Korea’s past 30 years.
Each and every project tells a specific but universal story of the way architecture performs in a changing Korean society. How does society, through its architectural projects, respond to the explosive demand for housing? How does it situate itself in an open society of mass participation? How does it adjust to changing conditions of work and layout? How does its role change with the increasing dominance of online space? “Cosmopolitan Look” presents the selected projects together with their spatial and temporal context, communicating both their status within Korean society and their relevance within a global society.
“We argue that identity is not a fixed entity, that architecture is not just a set of pre-determined monuments but a vast and dynamic agglomeration of ideas and practices. Following the spirit of 1989, we look to the past and to a future that breaks down conventional barriers.” – Hyungmin Pai, Chief Curator
