Presiding over our newest exhibition is an incredibly rare 40-foot-tall Buddhist banner that has never before left Korea. It is an unprecedented installation in the Great Stair Hall, and viewing it is for most a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Don’t miss its rarity, splendor, and power.
Rest Hole in the University of Seoul, South Korea by UTAA
The first floor of the dormitory in University of Seoul was originally an empty parking lot. An area enclosed by columns that supported the main office of the building, people would use the area only for smoking and storing bikes. The place was far too dark and inefficient and further desperately needed to be remodeled. In collaboration, the architectural students of the University of Seoul (Lee Sang-myeong, Ha Ki-seong, Baek Jong-ho) and UTAA designed a solution that would become much more than a simple rest area.
