In architecture, what does the site(land) mean? The initial architecture played a fundamental role in sustaining survival while physically protecting human safety in response to the harsh nature. A small space surrounded by four walls like a shelter expanded horizontally and vertically to form a city where many people gather and live together. With the development of technology, the system of human life has become more complex, and the meaning of the site supporting architecture and city has widened in multiple dimensions.

This lecture explains the natural, environmental, climatic, and artificial conditions of the site through various architectural projects that cross the East and West on the relationship between the site and architecture. It presents architectural cases which conceptually or spatially transformed elements of site in the process of design. Through this story, Professor Kim will explain how the conditions of a site can lead to the form and spatial composition of architecture, and how such relationships can affect human behavior and life.
