Sculpture & Architecture Park

Beom Jun Kim’s site-specific new commission Other Places creates a sunken outdoor room carved into the earth for visitors to enjoy as a space for quiet contemplation or social interaction. The architectural folly presents architecture in negative form as an act of subtraction from the land. Although symmetrical and square in its purest form, Other Places is made of earth and grass, so the experience is ever changing throughout the course of the day and from season to season. Visitors will naturally leave their imprint on the grass surfaces; over time the sharp edges and flat faces will erode and slowly return to the earth as a physical embodiment of memory and forgetting.

Beom Jun Kim practices architecture as WA.K Studio whose work lies at the intersection of real and virtual spaces.

With support from Elise Jaffe + Jeffrey Brown and the Yale School of Architecture.
