Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
There is no GW course similar to this. This course is unique in that it centers on functional objects rather than artworks, focusing not on aesthetics, but rather on objects as expressions of everyday life in Korea, and the social, cultural, and historical developments that informed the design of built environments in Korea.
