On e-flux an article presents Hanji House (lighthouse), a foldable structure, designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti for the exhibition Times Reimagined of the Korean artist Chun Kwang Young, on the occasion of the 59th Venice Biennale.
Hanji House, conceived as a scale version of a folding paper object, is a practical model of “paper-tree architetture”. The installation is inspired by playful and meditative practice of folding the paper in an infinite number of ways. The shape recalls the ancient oriental practices of origami and tangram, as well as traditional Japanese and Korean houses, based on a simple geometric modularity.
Inside the structure, the silent environment creates an immersive space in which visitors can relax, exploring Chun’s works.
Hanji House presents also in the map of e-flux for the Venice Biennale.
