Designing fair Housing: Jaejun Lee at TEDxSeoul

Jaejun Lee is a designer. While he majored in architecture and interior environmental design, Lee is rather more interested in designing the invisible than visible things; motivated by his design philosophy -- coexistence with city, sharing within the society, and communicating though art -- he has been working in diverse fields including visual art, public art, interior design, and publication exploring the tangible and intangible values of design.Recently he is under the "Sae-dong-ne(New Community) Project, " a project on fair housing system development, which aims for ethical architecture. He researches on practical methods of service design, which can serve as a platform. It is an attempt to change the current real estate system and its insatiable appetite for ever greater profit. This research views the peculiarity of Korean real estate along with the subprime mortgage crisis as its global counterpart. Yet, this is not (necessarily) what makes Lee extraordinary and outstanding. Only, his language has its own unique rhythm, in which it keenly points out the existing world as it is.Today we need good-natured architecture. Especially, at the time when public opinion is unfavorable to the housing policies like nowadays.TEDxSeoul 4th Event '?'
