Ecology in Concrete
|Synopsis||From the first generation of urbanologists who worked on developing Seoul to the generation of apartment kids born and bred in apartments, a variety of stories are documented in this film. And here, good memories, pending anxieties and discomforts as well as trees that have grown impressively are embedded in the times that have passed. Perhaps the most disheartening story is the one about apartments neglected in order to speed up the reconstruction process. Accordingly, the life span of a concrete-based apartment building in Korea is only 30-40 years.|
