About

 

Urban Terrains Lab is a multi dimensional practice that operates between disciplinary boundaries. We work in-between the diverse aspects of the built environment, whether inside or outside, temporary or permanent, object or field, partial or whole, to create urban terrains through generative strategies. We believe that spaces do not exist as absolute forms but are active/passive agencies of reflexive urban systems. We operate across disciplines to find immanent and emergent opportunities. We investigate and create strategies of spatial production that test conditions of normalcy and exception. Urban Terrains Lab actively engages the urban terrain as sites of investigation and critical processes of spatial production.

Urban Terrains Lab is associated with the Seoul National University Graduate School of Environmental Studies and the SNU GSES Environmental Planning Instittute.
