[SEMU-YÉOL LECTURE] 2017 April WALKING LECTURE
Residence of Han Gyu Seol, Myungwon Folk Museum at Kookmin University
: Trilogy of Relocation, Intervention and Adaptive reuse with a focus on the Residence of Han Gyu Seol
Lecturer: Cho In Souk
Architect, Principal of DaaRee Architect & Associates
In March, we examined the three historic houses, which were located in central Seoul. The lecture discussed the changes in the historic house with a focus on the problems of heritage preservation.
This lecture offers a short field trip to one of the three houses, the residence of Han Gyu Seol. It explores the issues of relocation of cultural heritages, the relationship with the original sites, and the intervention and adaptive reuse of a historic house as an opportunity to conserve heritage architecture.
Han Gyu Seol is the founder of the house. As the Mayor of Seoul and the Minister of Political Affairs during the late Joseon dynasty, his house preserves the typical aristocrat style of the late Joseon Dynasty. In 1980, on the verge of demolition due to the urban redevelopment of central Seoul, it was donated by the family of the former owner, the late Park Joon Hyuk and his eldest son Park Henry Hyo Jong to the late Myoungwon Kim Mee Hee, and then reconstructed at the present site adjacent to Kookmin University. Under relocation, the new owner added some facilities and new buildings for a tea house, a small pond, a pavilion and a cottage. Today it is being utilized as a space for the education and experience of traditional Korean culture.
Cho In Souk is the Architect and the founder and principal of DaaRee Architect & Associates since 1986. She studied her Ph.D in architectural history specializing in Historic Conservation and Restoration at GS Sungkyunkwan University. She has engaged in the projects of heritage architecture designs in many countries including Korea, China, Singapore, Bangladesh and Ethiopia. Since 2014, Cho serves as the vice-president of International Scientific Committee on the Analysis and Restoration of Structures of Architectural Heritage (ISCARSAH – ICOMOS).
