The old and usual, but the things that were taken for granted.

There’s something special in the walls of Korea. Instead of its purpose of protection or defense, 
it has a heart-warming feeling considering the relation of the people inside and pedestrians by 
decorating it with roofing tiles and patterns. The low walls have been the place where lovers exchange their letters, background that were slightly seen during the games of Korean see-saw and has been famously quoted in many Korean literature. I wanted to introduce the special ‘Traditional Korean Wall’ as an architecture, structure, and culture that everyone could understand.

DOLDAM GIL STORY

In the process of making the product, unlike the famous Eiffel Tower or the Colosseum which can be a finished product by the miniature itself, I wanted to portray the ‘Traditional Korean Wall’ in a miniature

size showing the inner and outer relationship as well. 

So, I thought the plant as the inner, ‘Traditional Korean Wall’ in between, and people as the outer area completing the relationship. Based on the production plan, it took 1 year to design and produce the ‘Traditional Korean Wall’ in the form of a pot. The pot assembled the scenery of the trees being seen above the ‘Traditional Korean Wall’.

We hope you will be interested in the re-interpretation of the ‘Korean Traditional Wall Pot’ so we could start a project of ‘Building a beautiful space in Korea’.
