Karen's Notes
Modernism - started after the world war - jumpstarted due to destruction - funds were provided in order to facilitate the reconstruction of citie destroyed Reconstruction Period - USA dictated the standards - how reconstruction must be carried out - World bank gave conditions Urban Planning Principles 1. Order, efficiency - geared towards the concept of sanitation - features of post-modern shit LAND USE PLAN - color coded according to function - specialization of function - city was chopped up into different functions, contributing to the productivity of the city MODERN PERIOD 1. Mass Production and Efficiency 2. Sanitation 3. Specialized Spaces 4. Segregation POST-MODERN 1. Mixed use

2. Flexibility 3. Reviving the Traditional 4. Localizing/Contextualizing 5. Branding - replicating in different settings 6. Thematic Developments Nanirahan pala si ma'am sa Krea for six years Korea in the 1980s - called as the Land of Apartments - speaks of the modern era - developed during the second world war to address the issue of homelessness POST-MODERN KOREA I. Watefront Projects Changgyecheon - six kilometer restored stream - used to be covered by a highway - artificial stream na siya - high maintenance II. Seonyudo Park III. Han river EWHA and Hongkik University - synergy between formal and informal developments Anyang Art Park - entire city utilized as an open museum Heyri Art Valley - several clots were developed to entice artists and settle there - must contain commercial, residential and shitty shit

Lotteworld - Chaebol - family owned conglomerates Myeongdong - street life - street shopping areas Putangina bahay na bato na naman yung pinaguusapan nakakasawa na :(((( Yuseong Outdoor Spa - blurred spaces

Ian Bentley's responsive environments

New urbanism Anchor building and development Permeability

o o o o

Places must be accessible to people to offer them choice Public and private access must be complimentary Physical and visual permeability depends on network of public space Decline of public permeability due to modern design trends

Scale of development Hierarchical layout Segregation


o o o o

Offers users a choice of experiences Variety of experience implies varied forms, uses etc Ms mahal magmaintain ng mixed use na developments though. Variety depends on three main factors

Range of activities Possibility of supply Extent to which design encourages positive interaction

Variety also depends on feasibility: economic, political and functional How easily a space is understood, what you can do there Two levels - physical forms and activity patterns Legibility in the old days - important buildings stood out Separating pedestrians from vehicles reduces legibility Environments which can be used for many different purposes at diff. Times Distinction between large and small scale robustness Three factors
