Korean Architecture: Diverse Perspectives beyond a Century
Publisher: C3 Publishing ISBN: 20925190 Format: Softcover, 350pp, 300x230mm
With this anniversary edition the magazine explores diverse perspectives on Korean architecture and how it has evolved over the past century until today. Korea’s remarkable economic growth from the 1960s through the 1980s has placed it among the ranks of today’s most advanced nations, also in terms of its architecture. Young architects in the 1990s furthered the burgeoning social movement, as architecture was utilised to communicate a changing civic consciousness. Study abroad also brought new insights and experimentation, and a recognition of buildings from the modern era as cultural heritage has raised awareness of Korean architecture internationally in the 21st century.
