Realms of Memories. Atmospheric Park Design

Alban Mannisi is Invited by Seoul City Hall to give a Lecture for the Hyochang Independent Centennial Park Formation Plan International Symposium

Seoul, South Korea
20th Nov 2019

Researches contributing to the development of the Hyochang Park Renovation Plan are based on complex unrevealed history and probably also on some confusing current affairs as the contemporary conflicts often relate to a vision of the past full of unspoken controversies.
In an attempt to dispel the current confusion, this approach is deployed around 4 axes of Korean Insurgent Ontologies, Spatial Curriculum, Hyochanwon Heteronomy, and Atmospheric Park Design.nd ethical issues.

– Korean Insurgent Ontologies approaches the idiosyncratic character of Korean resistance in the 19th & 20th centuries as part of its ontology ;
– Spatial Curriculum addresses the knowledge of genius loci from the resurgence of knowledge of local environmental ethics ;
– Hyochanwon Heteronomy deals with the specificity of the communities of the site to investigate the relation of its heteronomy with its current natural environment, political tension, and international heritage ;
– Atmospheric Park Design considers new methods of latest intangible parameters acquisition and their translation in design prospective.
It is 4 segments that are to replace what it means to plan a public space to commemorate an important step in the conquest of people’s sovereignty, but also to identify the intangible resources such as movements and ecosophies that explore the Korean collective memory and environmental psychology.
These conceptual tools attempt to clarify the issues specific to the Hyochang Park project drawn upon what the historian Pierre Nora developed with the notion of Realms of Memory.
Pierre Nora advanced the idea that place and memory were read from the meaningful events for a community, often conflicts or revolutions. This approach is to escape the ecological design of the 19th century (i.e., park or garden) and the market of neoliberal ecology (globalscape), and to engage in the new discipline of the Atmospheric Design that is demanded by new generations conscious of localism, cultural identity, and ethical issues.
