I once spoke with a landscape photographer and he pointed out that one problem his students have is that they try to capture too much of the expanse of the landscape. So much that they essentially capture none of it. This came as quite a surprise to me since a landscape is so large that one would be forced to do immediate and intuitive editing to produce a representative sample of the scene. It also made me think of how architecture has a similar effect on us, photographers or otherwise. Architecture is typically small enough that our mind thinks it can comprehend it. Know it's limits and intentions. It's an illusion of the mind to think that we can conceive all architectural considerations in a given subject, but since it fits in our field of view, we try to take it in one bite. This project by JUNGLIM Architecture is a great example of how architecture can remind us that we don't know as much as we think. The formal language of the project lets us know that we cannot define its beginning or end, nor a predetermined path of exploration. I look for this quality more and more, the counter-intuitive notion that we can't consume the work all at once. So take small bites and enjoy.
