Convergent Flux: Contemporary Architecture and Urbanism in Korea

Edited by Jinhee Park and John Hong

A remarkable synthesis of history, culture, and innovative design, contemporary architectural and urbanistic interventions in South Korea take shape in the context of great density and rapid societal change. This book examines thirty-two diverse projects in detail; six essays address topics such as the fusion of tradition and modernity, the redefining of so-called social spaces, and the country’s special topographical condition.
