A Portrait of Architectural Design Field as through the Eyes of Young Professionals
         

The terms the ‘sampo generation’ and the ‘880,000 KRW generation’ are used to refer to our younger generation and their present reality. Overlaying this is the sad reality of architecture school graduates, who have been forced to give up the work they love. Even though they have managed to enter architecture firms because of their affinity for the craft, the reality is that after only a few years one-by-one they leave the field. The climate of the discipline─for thouse who stand at the starting line, full of their visions and dreams for design, hoping to grow into a professional architect─is rough, dry and downright barren. For a long time a strong sense of self-determination was prevalent, but as complaints spread the situation has only become more widespread. The older generations only hear vague rumours and brief speculative comments on this set of circumstances, fuelled by the hope that ‘the end to our suffering is near’. Little by little, both those who early in their careers desire to work at a design firms and those with significant experience are falling in number.
Here, we scutinise the working and social environment facing those who have recently entered the architectural design job market, investigating the issues to diagnose their reality, and finally listen to the stories of how many are either accepting or avoiding there present reality. We believe that this will allow us to deduce the changes necessary in order for them to develop into healthy, enthusiastic architects. As the future of our industry, they will become the soil and fertilizer of the architectural discipline, and we, after all, have an obligation to examine our future.
