Young Architects Forum

8th Young Architects Forum was held at Seoul City Hall this evening. The theme was “POP & Architecture”, divided into three parts: part 1 was about kitsch and romantic architecture, part 2 was about architecture in mass media, and part 3 was about housing architecture. It was interesting to see how they organized this event, because the forum started with mass friendly, easy-to-understand architecture, then moved on to how architecture is represented in pop culture/mass media, then to how the mass perceived architect and architecture as, which is typically ‘someone who designs houses’ and ‘housing’ respectively. In my sense these kinds of talks meagerly helps people understand how much work architects put in to make a building happen. This is why I like how Jae-eun Jeong frankly portrays architects and architecture in her documentaries. I am looking forward to watching Jae-eun Jeong’s lastest movie, “Talking Architecture : City Hall.”
