 Abstract
The Jangji(障子) of Korean traditional architecture, had been known as sliding window which was installed on the inside of hinged window, or known as sliding door which devide rooms. In the Yeong-geon eugye(營建儀軌), the royal construction reports of Joseon(朝鮮) dynasty, the Jangji is classified as windows and doors. But, in the Sahengrok(使行錄), the record of Joseon envoys who were sent to Japan in 1600s, it is often seen that they did not understand the Syoji(障子) of Japanese architecture as a type of windows and doors which they had seen in Joseon. They understand the Akarisyoji(明障子) which were widely used in Japanese, as those were opened and closed by unique method of sliding, even they recorded as 'windows and doors were not installed'. In this study, the existing study on the Jangji those has been conducted by analysing the Yeong-geon eugye, were critically examined. And the development process of Jangji, it was used as flexible partition of interior space, was researched by analysing the contents related to Jangji, which were recorded on The Chronicles of the Three States(三國史記), The Heritage of the Three States(三國遺事) and the historical records of Goryo and Joseon dynasty. As the result of research, it could be ascertained that, when the sliding door was introduced to the interior space of Korean traditional architecture. And this study is expected to be used as a reference for understanding the form of house architecture before early Joseon period, intact house architecture artifacts are not remained during that time.
