South Korea in the last decades has experienced an unprecedented series of transformations at all levels in society: in the economics, in the culture, and in the politics. More specifically its capital Seoul has become one of the densest urban zones in the world. After a long period of dictatorship and along with an extraordinary process of economic development that characterized the last years, South Korea opened up to experimentation in all major arts, not least architecture. And architecture is at the center of the exhibition
S(E)OUL SCAPE. Towards a New Urbanity in Korea curated by Francisco Sanin, which presents an overview on the research which revolves around that emerging yet configured urban landscape that constitutes this unique city and is continuously engulfing the entire population of the South Korean peninsula.

Six among the most well known Korean architects are the protagonists of this evolution. Their work represents an ongoing research and exploration, a critical view to the processes taking place in this unique context.
Chung Guyon, Joh Sung-yong, Kim Young-joon, Min Hyun-sik, Seung H-sang, Yi Jong-ho represent the generation of those who have been able to trigger a debate, an interaction, a research which is aimed at rousing Korea from a feverish moment of great political turmoil. Their architecture testifies the consequences of this transformation. It ripened over time and is permeated by the several investigations and relations with the international experience.

La mostra
S(E)OUL SCAPE. Towards a New Urbanity in Korea, supplemented by a catalogue released by episode publishers www.episode-publishers.nl, is part of the program of traveling exhibitions produced and organized by iMage EXHIBITIONS.
