I have created a town consisting of a traditional Korean house (Hanok) that allows foreigners and young people to experience Korea’s traditional culture and life. This space consists of four sections, including three floors and an entrance layer. Also, the town has all of its facilities, including electricity, waterways, plumbing and heating systems, built in a traditional way. I drew the plan of the town, supervised all the fieldwork of this centre, and played a leading role in carpentry and masonry work as a carpenter and sculptors with my staff. I commissioned to experts the tile work for the roof of the Hanok which is the tile-roofed house.
