A Comparative Study between Carl Andre and Architectural Strategy in the Methods of Placeness on Floor
Kim, Su-Bin; Lee, Hee-Jae; Whang, Hee-Joon;
The floor is an essential part of the daily human activity, as well as in the field of architecture; however, its value as a fountain of meanings and its characteristics or emanating expressions, have been somehow diminished in the modern architecture. Carl Andre is one of the representing sculptor who sought for a change in understanding the traditional concept of the term 'placeness' by denying the object's vertical form and embracing a new method of sticking the fragmental units of the artwork on the floor. Therefore this study emphasizes the hidden potential that the term 'floor' can have, by basing the claims of the research from the ideas reelected in Carl Andre's sculptural works. Moreover, this study seeks for a methodological approach of application of the new term of 'floor' in the architectural design.
