Began designing in June 1996, Junggokdong Catholic Church took 5 years to complete by early 2001. Compared to the Middle Ages it is not a long period, but in this age of fast life it is quite a stretch. The period is substantial enough to change the conceptual philosophies of an architect, and it is humbling to look back on former ideas, some of which one tends to forget after a while. However, in 1997 I started a series feature called 'field notes' on the project in an architectural magazine, which left me with traces of the thoughts that were behind the project. Some of these fragmented discourses are different from the finished work, and some even differ from what I believe now. Nevertheless, they were important clues to the framework for the project. Here are some excerpts.Text by Seung H-Sang
