Event description

Description

Rapid urbanisation has both planned and unintended consequences on our climate, human life and the environment in which we live. Planners and designers across the world are tacking these challenges.

Please join us for the second Utzon lecture for 2018 as we explore key UNSW Grand Challenges affecting our cities and built environment.

Our guest Jungyoon Kim, Founding Principal of PARKKIM will present on the topic "Alternative Nature".

The term ‘alternative nature’ was first introduced in Jungyoon Kim and Yoon-jin Park's essay ‘Gangnam Alternative Nature: the experience of nature without parks’, published in the book Asian Alterity (2007), rethinking the concept of ‘what is natural?’ within the context of contemporary East Asian urbanism, especially in Korea.

Jungyoon will articulate the concept of ‘alternative nature’ through the projects of PARKKIM, including the Yanghwa Han Riverfront project ‘the Mud Infrastructure’, along with the design studio she teaches at Harvard Graduate School of Design ‘Korea Remade: Alternative Nature, DMZ and the Hinterlands’.
