New Trajectories: Convergent Flux, Korea opens at Harvard

This Friday, February 5th at 530pm there will be an opening reception of the exhibit, New Trajectories: Convergent Flux, Korea at the Harvard GSD Gund Hall lobby.  We hope you can join us to celebrate the event.

Convergent Flux, Korea is the first cross-disciplinary exhibition on Korean Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urban Planning and Design mounted in the United States.  The contents of the exhibition draw from the continuously emerging and hybridized condition in contemporary Korean society that has offered such a fertile and dynamic territory for experimentation.  Twenty-eight recent projects that exemplify the rising distinction seen in Korean design work will be displayed in relationship to the complex contemporary issues that inform the work.

The exhibition is co-curated by John Hong and Jinhee Park with Hailim Suh as advisor.
