Parallel Utopias: The Normalcy of Architecture in South and North Korea

Hartell Gallery

Parallel Utopias will analyze, document and exhibit the dystopic status of North and South Korea through critical interpretations of spatial conditions to propose divergent urban and architectural scenarios of an immanent reunified future. The objective is to amalgamate the architectural consequences of the propaganda machine deployed by North and South Korea to investigate the language of utopian dreams purported through the architectural apparatus. The exhibit will be produced by artist, visiting critique, and architect Yehre Suh and students as part of a seminar course.
