Overview

A South Korean black hole, Seoul suggests realistic alternatives for a "right city" and "good architecture".

Book Intro

Seoul, the capital of Korea for nearly 630 years, has replaced 70 percent of the city's urbanized areas (land for residential or commercial use) excluding green areas over the past 60 years. As a result, it has become a ragged synthesis of multiple fabric layers. Like a patchwork of different colors and patterns, from thick, rough cloth to thin, soft cloth, it was considered new fabric in name only. Buildings were built on this land at a rapid pace. Through urbanization and compressed development at an unprecedented level in the history of the world’s great cities, growing pains inevitably followed. This book tells the story of today's Seoul—which suffers from growing pains—and the story of land and architecture. From the Japanese colonial area to the subsequent military regime's forced development policy, and to current times, it examines the relationship between urban planning and architectural types, and it analyze the external conditions of construction, such as land and law, floor space ratios, time and costs. It also covers what inertia has existed in Seoul architecture regardless of the type, size, or place of architecture to date, and how to creatively reverse that inertia. In other words, this book deals with collisions, conflicts, compromises, and subversion between the "external forces of the city" and "internal principles of architecture" in the city of Seoul. ‘External forces’ are the building conditions applied "from outside to inside," such as land, density, law, institution, and cost; ‘internal principles’ are the building creation principles of "from inside to outside" that integrate space, form, and structure. The force and the principle are mutually exclusive terms that require strategic negotiations and trade-offs. In this book, Seoul's land and architectural problems, which are bound to be complicated in the process, are pointed out in a sharp and in-depth way from the perspective of a feasible policy vision and sustainable city.
