About Gwangju

The Hub of Asian Cultures and Global Arts, Gwangju the City of Elegance

Gwangju has been reborn as a cultural capital of Korea and a cultural hub of Asia, hosting the Gwangju Biennale and Design Biennale, a world-class festival in the field of contemporary art and design. The Asia Cultural Center opened in November 2015, and the nation's longest project (2003-2023) is underway to firmly establish Gwangju as an Asian cultural hub. The city also hosted the Universiade Gwangju 2015, a productive event and a cultural festival with youths from around the world.

Sacred Land of Democratization, Gwangju the City of Righteousness

The May 18 Democratic Movement, protesting against the tyranny of the military regime, had a profound impact on democratization movements in Asian countries seeking freedom and justice from dictatorships. The May 18 Democratic Archive was listed in the UNESCO Memory of the World Register on May 25, 2011 in recognition for its world historical value. In May 2020, May 18 was designated as a local public holiday to mark the 40th anniversary of the Democratic Movement.

Region of Traditional Gardens, Gwangju the Heritage City

Traditional gardens in Korea have diverse cultural and historical values, preserving the then phases of the times and life, and culture and art. They express a beautiful harmony of natural and artificial structures. Gwangju is where the gardens of Korea originate from during the Joseon period and is home to the privately-owned Soswaewon Garden that preserves the beauty of traditional Korea. Soswaewon Garden presents itself as a clean and transparent garden where the righteous enjoy the life surrounded by a bamboo grove.

Habitat of Ecological and Geological Wonders, Gwangju the Nature City

Mudeungsan Mountain is one of the major symbolic landmarks of Gwangju as it holds the spirit of the Namdo people. The pale pink azaleas and rhododendrons are in full bloom in spring, the leaves and silver grass on the ridges in the autumn, and the legends of the winter mountain add to the spirit and the scenery of Mudeungsan Mountain. Bingwoldang is the name of the auditorium at Wolbong Seowon. Hwangryong River provides a good environment for birds, and endangered species like herons and egrets coming in to breed. In particular, the wet fog formed in the Hwangryong River creates a beautiful, mysterious atmosphere.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT CHARRETTE
IFLA 2022 International Student Charrette will provide a three-day workshop in Gwangju August 29-31, 2022 to the participants. Undergraduate and postgraduate students majoring in Landscape Architecture (or other relevant majors) may participate in the Student Charrette.

It will provide opportunities for students from diverse cultural backgrounds to gather, communicate and exchange thoughts, and have fun. Student Charrette will be divided into teams, and experts from academia and industry help them to come up with creative and fresh ideas.

The theme of IFLA 2022 Student Charrette is “Re: Public, Gwangju.” Gwangju is a city that takes an important role in the modern history of Korea. The Gwangju Uprising took place on May 18, 1980 and resulted in many casualties, and the scars of that time still remain in many parts of Korean society. But, it also became a catalyst for Korea to evolve politically that made itself escape from its long-standing dictatorship.

Political democratization is founded on public justice, and this is the only way a society can become truly democratic. An environment in which people can communicate and have diversity in opinion can only be obtained through political democratization, and this is the only way social justice can be achieved and move on to discussing environmental justice. Although each country's political situation is different, it is important to look back on the public justice of each country, to understand each other, and to share the common point of view in that we must overcome the global crisis by working together.

Student Charrette aims to reflect on the meaning of democratization and public justice and to project relevant various values--equality, equity, justice--on various spaces of the 5.18 Memorial Park.

This year’s Student Charrette was planned by the IFLA 2022 organizing committee and organized by the Korean Institute of Landscape Architecture and the Korean Society of Landscape Architecture.
