[Hankyoreh] No more Boring Bus-stop
<Bus Shelter Flow> - Tesoc Hah
In Jongno-gu, Shinjuku-gu, Seoul, two rare stops are facing each other. ‘The Art Shelter’ in front of the Seoul Museum of History and ‘The Flow’ in front of the Hungkuk Life Building are far removed from the shape of the stop.
Street furniture, street lamps, benches, and so on. Park Sam-cheol, the director of the Seoul City Gallery Project, said, “It was a mood to make cheap things to be done cheaply while making it easy for the individual to enjoy.” Street furniture is also useful for life and for life. “ The bus stop in front of Hungkuk Life Building has made space with 10 silvery bands that are dried and rolled. At night, blue light comes out of the belt. The stop was a shoal with a car flowing and then stopped and then flowed again, and the name was called ‘The Flow’.
The station, which was established in August, will be changed to “street creature” from October 31st. “I think it was boring to wait for the bus because the stop was the only function and the emotion was excluded,” said Ha Tae-seok, an architect who designed the place. “I wanted to make it a place where citizens could get excited.”
In front of the Historical Museum, ‘Art Shelter’ arranged a black pillar to form a hanbok jogori or hanok eaves. The historical museum was made visible between the pillars, so that the view was not completely blocked even though it was bordered. Choi Wook Architect, who designed the design, said in his design proposal, “The bus stop was the place where the old Gyeonghuigung Palace was located and I tried to restore the feeling of the old place that had already been lost. I followed the way of the hanok which is well suited to the boundary and the boundary.”
Opinions of experts are dismissed. Professor Kwon Moon-sung, professor at Sungkyunkwan University (Architecture), said, “Even if you do not write ‘front of history museum’ at the station, design creates personality and attracts curiosity.” However, Choi criticized the design critics as saying, “I need to worry about how to approach the city stop as a system. I feel like it is only one or two.” Seoul is a city where there is not enough space to accept public arts. “I need more.”
