"Did you know that there is a bench at Seoul Han River Park that has become a hot topic among architects worldwide?
The beauty of nature and structural precision is inspiring many architects and sculptors. The Root Bench, a 30-meter-diameter public furniture piece, was created by architect Lee Yong-joo (@yongjulee.arch) in a grassy park along the Han River.
It dynamically captures the essence of low and wide tree roots, providing a unique focal point in a park frequented by countless citizens. Placed against the backdrop of a serene outdoor lawn, the sculpture creates a compelling contrast with downtown Seoul, offering fresh visual stimuli to visitors. The roots, branching out from the center of the sculpture, vary in height, forming different areas for citizens to either lie down or sit.
While its form is innovative, the bench is easy to maintain and repair, presenting a familiar and welcoming resting place for citizens. Notably, it divides the height into three categories: child chair, adult chair, and table, ensuring convenience in functionality.
Maintaining a complete circular shape extending from the center, the sculpture seamlessly merges with the ground, creating a curved form that naturally blends into the grassy park environment. The Root Bench not only offers a visual spectacle as a sculpture but also provides a communal space where visitors can naturally unwind and engage in conversation, fostering a sense of familiarity."
