Although Korean government have maintained good relationship with Australian’ over 60 years and Korean is the second largest group of Asian living in Australia, there are lack of understanding and communicating between locals and Korean in reality. This project (located in Strathfield, Sydney) would be the opportunity to help people exchange and preserve their cultures and knowledge by education, exhibition, performance and meeting. The program consists of education facilities, gallery, café, theatre, consulate office and a library.
This cultural centre has some Korean traditional characteristics in architecture, and the most significant element of them is ‘madang (courtyard)’. Madang is the primary space of Korean architecture that connects all the buildings and rooms, and holds event and performance for community.
