1. background

– For urban people in a place where everything is changing so quickly, the past would rather exist as a vague point which is cut off from the current than it would exist on the time continuity.

– Koreans of this 2010 is living in a global village and they are able to go anywhere on earth in a day. They are experiencing food, languages and videos of three different cultures but still, they believe that they would not make it if they do not bring Ramyeon and Kimchi with them for an one-week overseas business trip.

– For a living room of a Korean family, they have brought in Italy-made leather sofas, natural marble tiled floor, an arm chair by a renowned architect and a modern high-gloss table. However, when huge company is expected, they remove the sofa and table to the side and bring a pine tree dining table from a storage room. They decorate the table with food and everyone sit around the table which is place on a heated floor. After the meal, the elderly sit on the arm chairs with a few of the company and the rest are still sitting on the floor chattering. At this very moment, the make-over of the Korean’s living room which would change to a place to eat, drink and even sleep is actually occurring.

– In the past, there was a place for every village that people would gather for an event. In such place, a big, wide wooden bench was placed and it was as big as a living room. Since the bench was of simplicity, everyone could easily use it. It was literally ‘a very plain place’ in which everyone would get comfortable with. Now, the modern people have a meeting in various places called ‘a room’.

2. blueprint

The modern people of 2010 is living in a city which is equipped with both practicability and functionality which have been regarded as a product of the mass production. The people are

have their days all filled with something and live very dramatically but considering eating habits, it is thought that bodies and genes saturated in each culture have not globalized yet. In the past, furniture was newly arranged to have a space keep a sense of mobility according to the seasons and situations but now, since everything is fixed as a fireplace in a western residence, the built-in of furniture has been conducted. The modern people need to recall the previous culture which had delicately tailored one’s own space in accordance with a change. For this reason, I observed a living room culture in Korea of 2010 and determined that the place should exist as an open space as the living room of a Korean traditional house once did. By premising a remark that a living room as an open space will not be fulfilled unless a user regards the place as a recombinational space where he/she can arrange objects and assign each of them to a function as he/she pleases, I focus on conducting an experimentation to suggest alternatives for the objects in a living room as long as it is an open space.

Discussion: When components of an architecture is provided as an individual object which has not been simplified and defined, what kinds of diversity would a space construction have?

homescpae is consisted of constructions in a form of rectangular module, which are of different heights. While the rectangular constructions would not only symbolically realize an image of a city but also play a role as an object, they provide users with blanks to have him/ her give the blanks different functions in an interior space according to a situation. With the traditional floor materials and the modern product’s finishing method, a metaphor of an ordinary living space is projected and a contrastive image of crafts and the mass production is created. Through this work, while the visual and tactual effects maximize, an emotion of a different time in the same space is also conveyed.
