Talking Architect (Mal-ha-neun gun-chuk-ga). 2011. Documentary. Directed by Jeong Jae-eun.
Talking Architect is the first theatrical documenatry about Korea's contemporary architecture and architect. The protagonist, architect Jung Ki-yong (1943-2011) is a representative architect belonging to the 2nd generation of Korea's contemporary architects. Unlike most 2nd generation architects who think of architecture as a fetish, Jung knows the limitations of architecture and doesn’t worship it. He showed by example for whom an architect should work, and what kind of tool architecture should be in society. Jung always emphasized public values and ethics of architecture. Talking Architect grasps the traces of Jung’s life and his architectural philosophy and oeuvre, as well as a keen sensibility of a human-being facing with death. 95 min.
