Inwang Guard Put up Forest Retreat / Soltozibin Architects + SN Structure
Inwangsan Mountain, Seochon, Wihang literature. Han River and the mountains round grant Seoul a personality of its personal. Outer mountains encompass the outside of Seoul, and the 4 gates inside are surrounded by internal mountains once more. Inwangsan mountain, which is among the internal mountains, has a linked story throughout the previous residence between the small streams. Whereas trying up the historical past of Inwangsan Mountain and Seochon, we discovered about Wihang literature written by the center class of the Chosun dynasty. We observed the paradox Wihang literature possessed, with the ability to affect the noble class society period though decrease class members wrote it. Sadly, the center class may develop into a gaggle of mind however couldn’t escape the restrict of their birth-given class.
Inwang Guard Put up Forest Retreat. On 21/1/1968, 31 commandos from North Korea attacked Cheongwadae, the presidential workplace of South Korea. After the incident, Bugaksan Mountain and Inwangsan Mountain constructed greater than 30 navy posts and restricted residents within the space. Over a very long time, most of the navy posts have been deconstructed. Since 2018, the world has been open to residents. Among the many 20 posts constructed on the Seoul metropolis wall, 17 posts have been deconstructed, and three have been preserved to report the historical past of demolition and regeneration.
Constructed with RC pilotis and sandwich panels, the unique constructing of Inwang Guard Put up Forest Retreat was a barrack hidden within the valley. We tore down the construction above the pilotis and designed a brand new facility for the individuals. Our function was to alter the image of restriction and enmity into a logo of connection on this new period of openness, creating one other paradox. The brand new facility now capabilities as a shelter for hikers and a tradition advanced for tradition teams close by. Used as a shelter, library, and corridor, the brand new facility creates concord with the pure surroundings and folks.
Paradox, Tectonic scene. Timber structure begins by assembling parts right into a three-dimensional matrix. Gottfried Semper outlined the sort of technique because the tectonic technique. Variously sized parts kind the construction with conjunction and mixture. In conventional Korean structure, picket structure is principally designed with columns and beams assisted by rafters, which compose the detailed construction. The Inwang Guard Put up Forest Retreat breaks this precept of picket structure.
Wood columns which can be half the dimensions of the unique concrete pillars are positioned back and front, slid between two thick panels of 4000 mm x 10000 mm in measurement and 500mm in thickness. The column and panels make a crack, whereas oblique lighting is used to emphasise the disconnection. The heavy picket panels are positioned between the columns however not above, making it appear to defy the legislation of gravity. The floating determine of the thick wooden panels adjustments the attribute of wooden from heaviness to lightness. The paradox designed within the bodily construction of the Guard Put up is metaphorical with the scenario of the center class and Wihang literature.
