Publisher's blurb:
"The book discusses some important aspects in the traditional Korean architecture; various shapes of windows, lattice and doors, among others. The author explains two distinctly different patterns of lattice, the floral lattice, which represents Buddhist architecture, and the geometric lattice that adorns most Confucian architecture, and reflects upon their formal characteristics. Further, he examines various shapes of windows and elaborates on their abstract beauty and explores the functional significance the door has in the traditional Korean architecture. Underlying all these varying patterns and shapes, the author suggests, is a tangible connection between buildings and philosophy."


THE SPIRIT OF KOREAN CULTURAL ROOTS (EWHA WOMANS UNIVERSITY PRESS)
Series Note:
"The Spirit of Korean Cultural Roots series has been planned as part of the projects to figure out the source and the characteristics of Korean culture in general. The publisher of the series plans to release a total of 100 volumes (50 in Korean and 50 in English) by the year 2009 to precisely deal with various topics related to traditional Korean cultures - including literature, history, music, fine art, craft, furniture, food, costumes, architecture, and plays - under one grand theme. Pursuing openness and professionalism, these volumes finally aim to help readers understand Korean culture more deeply. One of the merits of this series is that it comes closer to the readers through its unique editing with small-size format and with abundant visual materials. One of the characteristics is that the series offer English translations with a view to contribute to the globalization of Korean culture abroad." (Source: koreanbook.de.)
