FILLED with SCENERY, STORY, and PEOPLE / YI DONGJAE, YE JAEGON, LEE JIEUN, OH MOOYEOL / Republic of Korea, Seoul
1. The project shows two different masses each representing conservation and development. The initial idea of designing is to conserve the history of the city by simply showing them. The first step of the designing is to create the scenery.Three of old cathedrals in Yaroslavl are visible on the site. The act of seeing the city represents the history of the city and the conservation of the city.We chose the best spot for sceneries, and put a box to show the scenery the best. These sceneries are regarded as one of the most important part of the exhibition, and the box is regarded as the head of the exhibition space. The box is a space that the conservation of the history of the city is going on.
2. The whole exhibition space is formed by extending the box, since the box is the most important part of the exhibition space. Then we fold this long exhibition space along the shape of the site. The void created by the exhibition space forms the hall which is the place to gather. The space which people gathers also simply shows the development of the city.
3. Based on these ideas, the circulations and spaces are decided. There are two main programs in the building; exhibition and hall. Spaces are decided from the massing process. The exhibition starts from the scenery. The circulation for the exhibition space is relatively limited to show the exhibition and the scenery effectively. The circulation of the hall should be free and opened as much it can be, for people to gather and create, which shows the development of the city. Though those two spaces seem to perform totally different functions and the circulations seem to never meet, the circulations of those spaces are intertwined, which shows the interaction between two masses and also the conservation and the development
4. Since this exhibition space is the space which conservation of the history is going on, the form of the exhibition space follows the rules of old buildings, such as heavy pillars exposed on the thick wall, which makes the building looks heavy. On the contrast, we tried to make the simplest and lightest structure for the hall. Two different masses represents
