About This Book
This book deals with windows and doors in Korean traditional architecture. The window consists of the lattice and frame. The lattice serves an ornamental function through its patterns, and its decorative quality may be either purely formal or symbolic. And speaking of the traditional Korean door, it has certain formalities but also allows for a wide diversity. The reason for the remarkable variation in size, position and shape of windows in traditional architecture is because the window also functioned as a door. Through this book, readers can acquire an aesthetic sense to interpret and enjoy the beauty of the lattice and the frame of traditional Korean window architecture as well as traditional Korean doors. Yim Seock-jae, the author of this book, is a professor of architecture at Ewha Womans University and has written extensively about architecture. He hopes this book can help to broaden and deepen the readers' appreciation for traditional Korean architecture.
