a personal collection of south-korean architecture

korean typologies – an attempt to categorize our collection of south-korean architecture

after watching, observing, walking, driving, talking, spying, looking through and at south-korean cities, villages, landscapes [obeservational research], we felt some need to disclose our discoveries: starting from the three ubiquitous residential types han-ok [S], yang-ok [M] and appat [XL], we soon expanded our research to a wider range of anonymous vernacular, common architecture. we categorized the buildings according  to their scale.
we are looking for transferrable principles which could give the specific potentials of the typologies a cultural, social, economical and ecological architectural perspective.
this collection does not intend to be complete, the collection is intended as a process.
