109 korean typologies

an attempt to categorize our collection of south-korean architecture

after watching, observing, walking, driving, talking, spying, looking through and at south-korean cities, villages, landscapes [obeservational research], we felt some need to disclose our discoveries: starting from the three ubiquitous residential types han-ok, yang-ok and appat, we soon expanded our research to a wider range of anonymous vernacular, common architecture. we categorized the buildings according  to their scale.
we are looking for transferrable principles which could give the specific potentials of the typologies a cultural, social, economical and ecological architectural perspective.
this collection does not intend to be complete, the collection is intended as a process.

071 ±brick: bau- & fassadesystem




»I was never really interested in brick«, says Jan Schabert (1967): »A dull material that swallows up quite a lot of energy in production. But still, the extruded bricks with large air tubes do contain acceptable isolation qualities.« It brought him to the idea to develop a brick that does not only contain excellent isolation qualities, but can also adopt other architectural and climatological functions.
It marks the approach by the German architect who collaborates with his colleague Martina Günther under the name »Architectur und so weiter« (Architecture and so on). The name especially illustrates their broad approach, which is not limited to the design of buildings and interiors, but is also aimed at doing research and developing concepts. Both architects completed a course in architecture at the Technical University of Munich and have a broad interest in ecological designs.
