목천건축아카이브는 다음의 제주 사옥인 다음 스페이스 닷원을 아카이브 프로젝트로 선정한 것을 계기로 매스스터디스와 공동으로 제2회 목천건축아카이브 포럼 현장과 시스템: 12년째 매스스터디스 를 개최한다. 이번 목천건축아카이브 포럼은 세계를 무대로 활동하고 있는 조민석과 매스스터디스의 작업을 비판적인 시각에서 조명하는 국제 학술 심포지움으로 기획되었다. 최근 2014년 베니스 비엔날레 한국관 커미셔너로 선정된 조민석은 매스스터디스의 창립자이며 대표 건축가이다. 대도시의 고밀도 생활양식, 구축을 통한 상징과 의미, 그리고 급변하는 사회상이 한국적인 특수성 속에서 어떻게 건축화되어야 하는지를 고민해 왔던 그의 건축 작업은 끊임없이 진화하는 건축 사유와 실천 양식의 가능성을 제시해주고 있다. 폭넓은 이론과 구체적인 건축 분석을 기반으로 이번 포럼에 초청된 국내외 석학과 건축가들은 조민석과 매스스터디스의 작업을 통해 건축, 도시, 문화 영역에서 정체성, 컨텍스트, 사승관계와 건축기율의 문제를 거론할 것이다.

Mokchon Architecture Archive and Mass Studies present Sites and Systems: 12 Years of Mass Studies, a symposium for the critical review of the work of the architect Cho Minsuk and Mass Studies. Marking the selection of Daum Space.1 for the archival collection of Mokchon Architecture Archive, the second installment of its forum series focuses on the issues raised by the innovative work of Mass Studies, the world-renown firm based in Seoul, Korea. Recently appointed Commissioner of the Korean Pavilion, 2014 Venice Biennale, Cho Minsuk, founder and principal of Mass Studies, has been a key figure in articulating the conditions of high-density, tectonic identity, and dynamic change specific to Korea. Through a widely recognizable language of theory and artistic production, he has opened new perspectives on the idea of emergent practices and evolving concepts. Based on broad theoretical observations and rigorous architectural analysis, the distinguished panel of international speakers will address the relevance of identity, context, influence, and discipline in the changing global conditions of architecture, urbanism, and cultural production.

Topic: Design and Scale: Does Size Matter?
At a time when hundreds of millions of people are moving to new and existing cities and skyscrapers are reaching ever higher, how can we maintain a sense of proportion and human scale in what we design and build? Is there still a place for the small, alongside the big?

Format: 8 players interview each other, one-on-one, one after another. The conversation starts with Player #1 introducing Player #2, who shows five images in five minutes. Player #1 then interviews Player #2 for five minutes. Player #2 then introduces Player #3, who shows five images in five minutes. Repeat until Player #8 introduces and interviews Player #1.

Lecture: 2012 Sino-Korean Architects Forum 
December 19, 2012

Minsuk Cho is an invited guest speaker at the 2012 Sino-Korean Architects Forum.

“Over the past forty years, with the combined efforts of three generations of native architects, South Korea has gradually gained its own architectural identity with international recognition. Meanwhile, experiencing the same high speed economic development, Chinese architects have started to notice the achievement of Korea's construction, and have tried to learn more from Korean peers. Though both countries have cultural, aesthetic and technical similarities, a systematic comparative study on contemporary Korean architects has long been absence.

The forum alms to introduce architecture and architects in South Korea, and demonstrate their diversity to their Chinese counterparts. Through debates among architects, the forum would be an opportunity to probe into the developing history of the contemporary Korean architecture and the influence it has brought to the overall Asian architecture.” 2012 Sino-Korean Architects Forum

Lecture: Forum & Forum 2012 Architect Series #1 
September 25, 2012

포럼앤포럼은 지난 3월과 6월, 올해를 관통하는 주제인 ‘건축의 비건축, 비건축의 건축’을 가지고 건축, 도시, 디자인, 현대미술, 패션, 영화 등 다양한 분야와 서로 이야기를 나누어왔습니다. 그리고 이번 9월에는 건축에 좀 더 초점을 맞추어 ‘포럼앤포럼 건축가시리즈’를 마련하였습니다.

그 첫 번째 시간으로, 서로 매우 다른 성격의 작업을 보여주고 있는 조병수 소장(Bcho Architects)과 조민석 소장(Mass Studies)을 초대해 각각 ‘경험과 인식’, ‘발견과 발명’이라는 키워드를 토대로 두 건축가의 작업에 숨어있는 건축적 혹은 비건축적인 고민의 흔적을 풀어낼 계획입니다.

건축가의 개별 프로젝트에 대한 이야기나 전문가의 리뷰를 통한 글은 여러 매체에서 어렵지 않게 찾아볼 수 있습니다. 하지만 같은 공간과 시간을 살면서 이만큼 상이한 작업을 하는 건축가들의 이야기를 한 자리에서 듣고 직접 나누는 기회는 갖기 어려운 것 같습니다. ‘포럼앤포럼 건축가시리즈’ 그 첫 번째 시간에는 한국적 감수성을 잘 보여주는 조병수 건축가와 무한한 상상력으로 기존의 틀을 깨는 조민석 건축가를 모시고 이들이 충돌하고 만나는 지점을 통해 ‘지금, 여기’의 건축의 모습, 그리고 관객으로 참여하는 ‘우리’의 모습도 되짚어 보는 기회가 되길 바랍니다.
