A Conversation with Memory: Choon Choi
         

All around us there are buildings that invite memories. Whether they are personal memories, the memories of past architects, or the memories of times past, they each contain their own unique memories. What kind of attitude should the architect possess when buildings such as these are faced with change? These circumstances are nothing but awkward for those of us who have experienced a disjunction with the times and have forgotten the past. Choon Choi appeared on the scene as an architect who subtly uncovers memories displaced from the Kkummaru and through new interventions has created ‘a bowl of memories’, displaying an architectural methodology that connects the past, present and future.
In this Frame, we examine the recent work of Choon Choi through the issue of ‘memory’. By externalizing romantic memories and realistic demands in addition to the Maeil Innovation Center (which was in dire need of rescaling) and the construction of the Maeil Dairies Pyeongtaek Gatehouse, he devised a catalyst that would guide the transformation of the entire central area. On the other hand, you have projects like La Cucina Namsan which challenge the value and scope of conservation, and the necessity of demolition and reproduction. How might we characterise the future of architectural memory? Let us engage with the unique methodology of Choon Choi as we follow his conversation with time.
