This Mural in South Korea Inspires Play While Maintaining Social Distancing
Graphism on an architectural scale and a combination of contrasting, complicated patterns and motifs are common themes in the architect’s work. Here, the greatest challenge was to design the repeated shapes and proportions to fit the scale and curve of the walkway, calibrating them to make the simple yet engaging and expressive painting resonate when viewed close-up and from a distance.
The vivid installation includes a series of 6.7-by-6.7-inches and 13-by-13-foot thematic squares in bright clashing colors that provide focal points and make social distancing easier.
Most importantly, Migliore, who is also a chair professor at the College of Design at Busan Dongseo University and a professor at Polytechnic University of Milan hopes the new promenade will become a “collective home” for Busan residents. “We want to encourage people to use space in different ways—to experience art and nature, and to think and dream. Since the pandemic, these things are more important than ever,” Migliore says.
