49th Anniversary Feature: THE NEW GEOGRAPHY OF KOREAN ARCHITECTS IN THE WORLD
         


 
SPACE tries to chart the new geography of our globe-trotting Korean architects in celebration of our 49th anniversary special feature. Thinking about regionality and cultural identity through features of ‘Architectural Spirits & Culture of Korea’ in December 2002, ‘Rethinking the Identity of Korean Architecture in the 21st Century’ in December 2012, and ‘Boundaries of Korean Architecture and an Expansion of Our Cultural Territory’ in January 2013, we explore questions about the definition of and boundaries of Korean architects. This was to define the inside and to examine its features. Now we pay attention to the ‘outside’, but this category doesn’t mean divide by a wall and find a difference. We intend to examine the emergence of a new ‘species’, born in a strange environment, and to observe how they will overcome difficulties with the Korean identity. Such values will have not tree-like structure with one root but a grain structure, like a network, and they will also expand the borderlines of Korean architecture. 
 
The history of contemporary Korean architecture will be sixty, which is supposed to be an age when people become open-minded. Not only architecture, but also the world is open and connected and now we entered a period when a cultural background and experience are considered more important than origins and nationality. In such a situation, we pay attention to architects practicing with the genetic make up of Korean architecture.
