‘tectonic landscape’ is a project by seoul-based studio HG-A | live components that has been installed in the exhibition space of UMI hall, at the daegu art museum in korea. the ground formation was built from 1,000 pieces of recycled plastic pallets, and consists of two- and three-dimensional layers that mimic the folds of natural topography as they overlap one another.

the project references a drawing of the korean landscape, and offers an experience for visitors where they can walk, climb, rest and play on the sculpture. the re-purposed industrial materials were gathered to make a playful space and assembled differently according to the functional, spatial, and structural purposes required.

the work is the final version of consecutive research on pallets, which explored horizontal formations, as well as screen options for vertical stacking – three layers of the crates made it possible to achieve a maximum 5m-high wall with varying heights. the combined angles and distances follow the c-shaped boundary of the exhibition space, directing the visitors’ view lines and circulation.
