Text description provided by the architects. Tectonic Landscape is the artificial landscape fit to the exhibition space, Umi Hall, at Daegu Art Museum in Korea. The new landscape consists of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional layers, which contains the folded view of natural landscape with overlapping each other.
The project represents a spatial drawing for Korean landscape, as well as experiential drawing which makes it possible to walk, climb, rest and play. Beyond the independent art work, it provides the space for sitting and resting to the people who visit this museum.
The recycled industrial materials, 1000 pieces of plastic pallets, had been gathered and formed into the poetic space with different assemblage logics for functional, spatial, and structural purposes. This work is the final version of consecutive research about pallets which explored the landform with horizontal laying, as well as the screen effects from vertical laying.
Three layers of pallets made it possible to erect the maximum 5m-height screen wall with varying heights. It also shows the dynamic screen effects following the viewing angles and distances. The whole combination of horizontal and vertical layers folds following the c-shaped boundary of exhibition space, which leads visitors’ gaze and circulation.
