We are raumlaborkorea, a satellite team of raumlaborberlin.
This is our process blog, where we collect stories, information, observations and interesting experiences taken from our stay in Anyang, where we are working on 3 projects for Anyang Public Art Project (Apap 2010):
openHouse: an architecture for living, an urban prototype for encouraging public use in public spaces of Anyang, Korea. openHouse is situated in APAP 2010 New Community Centeri in Hakwon Park and houses multiple programmed spaces including artist atelier, workshop space, community garden, kitchen, bar and shops.
openMasterplan: a research based mapping and documentation tool, structured by four layers of investigation, including 1) a potential map exploring urban phenomenons, movements, curiosities, gaps and energies 2) a desire map based on the collection of stories, interviews and documentation 3) a process map which reveals the changes, energies and transitions of urban elements and actors, experiments, speculations and manipulations 3) a final visionary map to be presented to City Hall as a vision for the future uses of New Community Center
openProgram: a 3 month intensive festival for APAP2010, loaded with workshops, lectures, screenings, performances, exhibition, concerts and parties. With events run by artists, community groups and APAP, Open Program will exhibit the spirit of New Community through social and public exchange, learning and interaction
