Culture Reminiscence

Culture Reminiscence aims to incorporate Korean traditions into contemporary living environments. The basis for a spatial analysis of the Korean living culture is provided through Han-Ok, the traditional Korean interiors of a home. Through reinterpreting Korean traditions into our living environment, the repurpose of an existing structure into a multi-apartment complex, raises awareness of the traditional values and identity of the Korean culture that have been disregarded and forgotten. I propose a hybridization of Melbourne’s Korean culture with Australia’s backyard culture, to create spatial experiences for Korean immigrant families to appreciate the balance between Korean cultural practices and living in the Australian environment.
