Domesticity in Seoul is no longer something that happens in a single place: the house. But something that is constructed by connecting different spaces spread out within the city. Home is not spatially fixed, unitary and consistent; but discontinuous, fragmented and constantly changing.

Seoul is the strategy to segregate social realities to make daily life un-political. But every depoliticing strategy gets its response. A number of urban home fragments act as parliamentary spaces where diversity meets and is confronted. These are the fragments the project takes into account and prototypes.
